  • With great displays both inside and out this WW2 museum is well worth a visit, it is convenient if you want to visit the commonwealth cemetery that is within a 2 minute walk from the museum

  • I spent 2 1/2 hours in this museum learning so much about the D-Day invasion. Their exhibits explained so much about the planning, strategy and the officers involved. Thank you for keeping this story....  more

  • 💯 make this one of 2 things to see in Bayeux. Do this first park for free and walk into town Challenged by the walk through history. Lay out great and with the film being in English and then French just choose your time. Loved it is the wrong word. Helpfully educational...
  • Outstanding. It’s easy to forget that the battle for Normandy was more than just the landings, it was a 100 day campaign across multiple operations. This museum does an awesome job of chronicling this, and it’s cheap as hell. Unmissable if in Normandy.
