Western Approaches are offering visitors a chance to explore the historic war museum in Liverpool

Western Approaches Museum is one of Liverpool's hidden gems. Walk through hidden rooms and discover the stories locked in the wartime bunker that protected the tactics and secrets of the British Armed Forces plotting to bulwark the Western Approaches and aid the Allied victory.

 

Glimpse the documents and tools the forces used to monitor enemy convoys and inform the British government of their findings whilst keeping their intelligence secret from the enemy. 

 

See where military personnel worked every day and night in the Map Room, the nerve centre of the Battle of the Atlantic, which has remained exactly how it was left when the doors closed on 15 August 1945.
