Jersey War Tunnels is a permanent reminder of the Nazi Occupation of Jersey during the Second World War.
Dug deep into the hillside of St Peter's Valley by forced and slave labour during the 5 years of Occupation, the tunnels run over 1km in length. The tunnels are now filled with imagery and interactive dioramas that examine the daily dilemmas faced by residents and authorities of the time. It is one of the most visited tourist attractions on the Island, as well as an important site of heritage and conservation.
The tunnel complex, formerly known as Höhlgangsanlage 8 (Ho8), now plays host to a series of galleries reflecting the experiences of those who lived through it. Visitors will be led through the events of evacuation, deportation, captivity and siege, to eventual liberation.
In 2015 a new immersive ‘Organisation Todt’ exhibition was added.
The attraction's Organisation Todt Exhibition ‘The OT Gallery’ reveals
a photorealistic interpretation of OT stories which have been animated into an
engaging sequence of events. It also depicts how the Tunnels were constructed by
the slave workers.
The exhibition has been created using high-level, digital production methods that bring Jersey War Tunnels on a par with some of the best museums and attractions in the world.
A thought provoking experience.
