Très bon musée avec en guide passionné qui a rendu la visite encore plus vivante Explications très intéressantes par rapport à la construction du port artificiel more »Very good Museum with passionate guide who has visited the still more lively explanations very interesting compared to the construction of the artificial port
A short drive from Bayeux, this museum was definitely worth the stop. We originally stopped to see the 360 museum just at the top of the hill. We walking down the walkway to the museum to a nice harbor/pier which had views of the British floating harbor. There are 2 short films in the musem which piece together all the aspects of the harbor in relation to the war efforts. If you want a guided English tour it has to be pre coordinated.
The museum itself is good with lots of displays that show what it was like why operation mulberry was in operation. The best part is the beach in front of the museum, when the tide goes out you can walk right up and touch the sunken barges and boats from wwII, the view of the harbor is even better once you know the story
Very impressive, the 360 degree film was super and to think it is real footage . Go down to the beach and see the pontoons and visit the museum. Such heroism by the allies and the locals. If not for them i might not have been born.
Needs a bit of new interpretation but great videos and friendly staff. Perfect location to tell the story.
Although it feels a bit outdated, it is one of the best museums out there that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. They have a very interesting display of Port Winston, really depicting the wonder that it was. Also the staff are multilingual kind and very helpful.
