All in English and French, very didactic with photographs, tanks, cars and objects. Also with projection in English very close is the British cemetery
A lot of detail, and interesting exhibits. Nice to follow the timeline after the landings. Didn't have anything on the civilian populace, which was a shame, and whilst I found the information panels interesting, it was hard to keep the kids as engaged. Good vehicle displays. Located in a lovely town, and really good value, especially when combined with either of the other two museums in bayeux. The war cemetery in the town is on the other side of the road, and you spend time there too when visiting. Recommended.
For those with interest in WW2 history the museum is worth a visit. It has lots of artifacts on display. Especially on a rainy day visitors to Normandy can spend 2-3 hours going through the museum. The inbuilt cinema showing D-Day and the destruction of war is thought provoking. It also has a nice gift shop.
