  • We visited the museum during the trip to Normandy. It was an obligatory stage that did not disappoint expectations. In the many halls there were artifacts,films,means ... everything. Well explained in English all that was present. It then enters a hangar where there is a faithfully modernized B26 (although it has never participated in war actions) and some means. A museum not to be missed, it's worth it.

  • We visited as a family. Lots of material and explanations about the landing. The museum shop is also nice with quite decent prices. What to do

  • This museum was a great place to start the tour of the Normandy beaches. It is very well done and gives a comprehensive look at what it took to plan the entire invasion. Walking out onto the beach at low tide, while muddy, was incredible after looking at all of the history. Would definitely recommend a stop here.
  • Outstanding museum, much more to see than I had anticipated which took well over an hour - and that was hurrying! The location, right on the beach itself and on the site of an old bunker, is incredible, and there are loads of outside exhibits to enjoy, including a replica landing craft. The real deal is inside the museum, as well as a Marauder bomber and so much more. I'd go back in a heart beat.
