We live close by and know this bunker. There is an entrance fee and tours are self guide or if you like you can pay for a guide. Lots of WW 2 history.

free flow in the exhibition but the bunker is a mixture of free flow and tour guide. However, the tour guides are flexible and I am sure your child will be fine
