  • I would strongly recommend this detailed display of many artefacts form the period of the Omaha beach invastion and some of the relics which have been salvaged in the coastline. There are many persona...  more »
  • This opinion is without comparison since we will not have had time to visit the other museums that line the Omaha area. Still, this little museum is very nice to visit, with "very nice stagings" (if I can write this as well because let's not forget that we are talking about a museum on the landing), a lot of period material and memorabilia found on the field of fights or in flea markets. Your visit will be accompanied by a small 25-minute film that you can show to the youngest because it is very well shot so as not to report the violence that was the fighting in Omaha. One session out of two in French, the other in English. Finally, a souvenir shop will close your visit. The value for money of the visit is good.

  • The place has a lot of war material to look at. And they have a pretty cool 25 minute film they show about d-day. However the place is super small that if you go on a busy day, good luck trying to walk around. You’ll be squeezing through people just to see everything. It also feels like half of the stuff is haphazardly arranged in display cases without any information of what it is. Definitely could be organized better.
  • This is quite a small museum but it packs lots in - there must be thousands of historical artefacts here. Very interesting exhibits and lots to look at. The only thing missing was some more background information - lots of the exhibits were shown but information about what they were was missing so it was hard to understand context. The film shown was one of the most informative we saw on our whole Normandy trip and the cinema is very comfortable - I’d recommend visiting just for that!
