Airborne Museum reviews
Modern informative and complete exposition. Good information and good use of stories telling. Both sides of the battle. Best WW2 museum visited. more »
I’ve been to this museum countless times over the years and there’s always something new. It is just the right size, very interactive and my favourite of the WW2 museums. more »
As an American military family visiting, great experience for all!! My six kids enjoyed it, they give you an interactive tablet and the kids loved it. We really enjoyed it!! Reasonable prices and a must to see if visiting the beaches of Normandy. Veterans of both the 101st & 82nd....have to see!! The area is very cozy, even during off-season (March). Stop at the craft beer shop in town for 82nd beer. See the church with the paratrooper stuck. Great visit!! Recommend!!
Excellent museum. Allow all day to visit and to look at the nearby church. Make use of the interactive tablet which is really informative and has fun extras and information - we saw lots of people just walking round with them on the strap round their necks which is a shame as there's such a lot you can do with it (including location-specific information, quizzes and finding info on the exhibits so you get a downloadable certificate, face in holes photos etc). All the displays and sections of the museums are really well laid out and there are plenty of immersive experiences. Definitely one you shouldnt miss on a trip to Normandy.
