  • This museum was a great place to start the tour of the Normandy beaches. It is very well done and gives a comprehensive look at what it took to plan the entire invasion. Walking out onto the beach at low tide, while muddy, was incredible after looking at all of the history. Would definitely recommend a stop here.
  • Outstanding museum, much more to see than I had anticipated which took well over an hour - and that was hurrying! The location, right on the beach itself and on the site of an old bunker, is incredible, and there are loads of outside exhibits to enjoy, including a replica landing craft. The real deal is inside the museum, as well as a Marauder bomber and so much more. I'd go back in a heart beat.
