  • Not the best of museums. 15 minute film ok. Unimpressive exhibits. It does tell the story of the D Day landings, however manages to skip over some major aspects, pre D Day, such as the battle of...

  • We visited this Museum and it was well worth the 8€ entrance fee per person. Great exhibits in French and English telling the story of the June 6th 1944 D Day landings. It managed to tell the history....  more

  • Absolutely amazing museum for many reasons with many artifacts from WW2 including a B26 Marauder. There’s a 12 minutes film that plays in the cinema ever so often that you shouldn’t miss. That’s also other interesting monuments outside that you must see such as the Higgins boats and the monument to the 4th infantry division. The beach itself is very peaceful and a solemn place to pay your respects.
  • Better than expected. A lot of detail and really well maintained show pieces. The 12 minute film was most informative. Definitely worth a visit. Highly recommended.
