  • Best museum in the normandy. Every other museum on the beach just tells the same and same again. They are all Allied-coloured and do not report neutral. (Yes, there are also some good ones :-) ) Really good and well explained about the front they built around the germans. Well documented! Thanks!
  • Lovely views, excellent though small memorial. Very interesting and informative Musium. Nice that it seems to change to display and talk every few years.
  • Fantastic views from one of the high points overlooking the battle fields known as the Falaise gap. Very moving war memorial
  • Very good place with lots to show you about the war.
  • The position of this monument, overlooking the valley of 'the pocket' gives you something of an insight into how things might have played out. Quite moving.
