  • Amazing museum and experience. The 3D cinema was so interesting and available in English and many other languages with headphones. Great two films really informative and great to watch also the flight simulator was something I hadn't experienced in a museum like this before it was great and really gave an insight into the fear these boys and men must of been feeling. So sad but a really enjoyable day. We spent 3 hours here and could of stayed longer, would be nice if there was a cafe as afterwards we were so hungry but that's the only thing I'd say.
  • Absolutely worth a visit. There are a lot of museums in this area but I would recommend this one as one of my favourites. There two movies in a 3D theatre, a very nice exhibition and a simulation flight in a plane dropping you in Normandy on D-day (or supposed to drop you).
