  • I could not believe all the artifacts from the D-Day landing. What better way to pay homage to the heros who fought and perished just a few yards away. Don't miss this museum.  more »

  • The place has a lot of war material to look at. And they have a pretty cool 25 minute film they show about d-day. However the place is super small that if you go on a busy day, good luck trying to walk around. You’ll be squeezing through people just to see everything. It also feels like half of the stuff is haphazardly arranged in display cases without any information of what it is. Definitely could be organized better.
  • This is quite a small museum but it packs lots in - there must be thousands of historical artefacts here. Very interesting exhibits and lots to look at. The only thing missing was some more background information - lots of the exhibits were shown but information about what they were was missing so it was hard to understand context. The film shown was one of the most informative we saw on our whole Normandy trip and the cinema is very comfortable - I’d recommend visiting just for that!
