  • Museum visited last August. It must be 2 hours announced, at their own pace with audio guide. Multitude of objects and uniforms of epochs. The story seen by people of different ages and the outstanding slide show venues. Go even if you are not too hip on this theme, you will not regret.

  • Very good museum showing WW2 from a personal perspective of 4 people, 2 locals and 2 soldiers one from either side. The displays are informative and the 3 film shows very good. Outside the American Memorial is very impressive and the views from the top give a good view over the surrounding combative area.
  • Staff was super friendly and helpful. The exhibit was amazing. Very informative from all perspectives.
  • If you are an History fun, especially WW2, this place is for you.
  • INteresting museum, but expect to need at least half a day if you want to go through all the exhibition.
  • I highly recommend it for any war historian or any American who had parents and/or grandparents serve in Europe in WWII...heck, just go!!
