  • An excellent museum which explains the battle of Normandy in great detail. Very interesting and a must if on a battlefield tour of the area. Loved it and would highly recommend a visit. You can also buy tickets for the Tapestry at the front counter here.
  • Museum dedicated to the brave men who fought in Normandy during the second world war. Here the visitor will have the opportunity to learn about various armaments and equipment that the soldiers used at the time. My respect and admiration to everyone who fought in this region. Come and see!
