  • Fascinating and beautifully done. There were also slide shows and a movie about the Landings. It made clear how innovative and resourceful the designing engineers were and how their Port Winston harbour changed the outcome of the war. It shows what can happen when a group of talented people are told what an objective is, and instructed to find a solution to the problems. This is not one to be missed.
  • Nice model and a short film. But all in all very limited. Some random items here and there without much context or explanation. For a more enjoyable experience at a lot lower cost I would advise you to go to "Liberators Museum Normandy 1944"
