  • Too bad the rain and wind were part, but this place on the Hill in the face of the plain on the Dive is really beautiful. The place is very well maintained and flowered. The keeper / guide is friendly as well as the young girl at the cash register. A 10-minute film for very clear and precise explanations. Then the guide made us into a second bathroom in a 1/2 circle and giving a panoramic view over the plain and the explanations, stories, anecdotes by him are appreciated. Duration of the tour about 2 hours. It's like an old blockhouse. Things to see and do for the memory of these fighters.

  • 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
  • Very good place with lots to show you about the war.
