  • We were very pleasantly surprised at how good the Airborne Museum is! Very well kept. Massive amount of exhibits both inter-active and to view. The centre pieces of the C45 and glider are superb...

  • A museum focusing on the airborne divisions that landed in this area. Very well curated though some old veterans said it was too realistic for their memories. You can pick up an interactive I pad like device which helps expand the experience. Ideally you are looking at a good 2 hours here. There is a shop and decent toilets on site.
  • Amazing museum! Brilliant for adults & children alike, my children loved the tablets issued at the front desk which are very interactive and make the visit really fun & interesting for the children. Everything in French and English, the tablets have multiple languages too. It was fascinating to see all this up close and listen to witness accounts gathered. Soldiers had names and faces and being able to discover their lives in those few days really brought home their heroism to stand up to fight knowing they would more than likely die.
