  • A very clear Audio visual with diorama, in English ( for us). Clearly explains the build up and the importance of the desperate fight and astonishing bravery of the Poles. Who risked, and lost, their ...  more »
  • For me, the interest of this Site-Museum lies in the last part of the visit because it is located on a hill that dominates the plain below. . In a well-appointed room, you are firstly invited to a movie, then an explanation of model of the battle of the pockets of Cliff, all very educational. Then the moderator-speaker (which saves its effects!) open the windows behind you and then, you have before you in true natural site of the battle in question. Effect guaranteed thanks to the detailed explanations of the host.. .and also to the many photos in the windows... printing to dominate the field of battle... Back in room for a last little documentary on the men of this battle, the Poles including... all on a good hour and a half. Essential visit for "Lovers" of WW2, can be a bit difficult for beginners.. .reviser his prior classics! There is a tour on foot also lasting 2 hours... The site is well indicated (Mont-ormel and not montormel!) with Parking, decent price, a small shop, walk paths...

  • brilliantday lovely verynice.
  • Really important history learnt during this visit. Hadn't realised how pivotal this battle was in the grand scheme of the war. Really enjoyed how they explain the progression of the attacks. Worth a visit!
  • 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
