The caves are interesting, and I would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area. If you are interested in history, you will definitely enjoy reading the "posters" here. However, as a museum the installations are of varying quality, some are quite ugly to be blunt.

The Great Siege tunnels are quite isolated, being a long walk from the other St Michael's Cave and the cable car, the last part being uphill. Entrance to the tunnels was included with price of the cable car ticket that we bought. You can walk a short way into the tunnels from where there are some impressive views through the... More

Visited here on a very rainy day and noticed that we had to use umbrellas "inside" the tunnels, too. Had to be very careful walking because of this, but the tunnels were very interesting and used this experience to visualize what it must have been like there many years ago. Worth a visit but take a taxi to get there.

I didn't know much about the tunnels but when you first see the manequins they give you quite a fright. The Siege Tunnels are included in the Nature Reserve ticket (£21 student Cable Car+Nature Reserve). The boards are interesting to read and tell a great story. Right at the bottom there are some World War 2 stuff including a little... More

The tunnels are very cool and you get a lot of good views and pics while learning about the history of the rock. Requires walking over uneven paths, but is well worth it. Don't miss this. We even saw a plane landing from within the rock tunnels.

These are accessible by public transport No 1 bus which is an experience in itself although you will need to walk a fair walk to gain access. This is a fascinating system of tunnels dating back to the seventeen hundred. You will need to allow plenty time as when you walk through these tunnels they are littered with accounts of... More

It's one of the best things to do in Gib. The history is amazing and you almost go back in time when you are there. Recommended.

This is part of the history of The Rock of Gibraltar and so must be visited. Although don't bank on spending too much time here as there is not a lot to see.
