  • Pretty little village with beautiful small houses in stone. Very peaceful with a lovely little fishing port. The price of restaurants is more than correct. The ride to the Lighthouse is very pleasant and offers beautiful views of the landscape and also on the village.

  • a little disappointed despite everything in terms of stereotypes and comments had on Barfleur. This is still a village, quiet with a lovely fishing port and location

  • This is a fishing town where people still catch fish instead of tourists. Nice work here, and that the tourists only come here. There are plenty of restaurants and small bars, and there is plenty to see in the Center to make your hours. Completely different than St.-Vaast-la-hougue a little further on, where the plastic yachts are side by side. Charming village, certainly worth a visit.

  • Impressive and very worth seeing, remarkable show, sad story behind this exhibition.
  • Excellent museum and the flight simulator is one of the best I've been on, forget the jet fighter ones this one is THE BEST.
  • The museum has some very interesting pieces and the airplane experience is pretty unique. The introductory speech is a little cheesy, but that's easy to overlook.
  • Small museum on an authentic location, known as "Dead Man's corner", focussing on day-landing troops. Large room-full displays of German paratroopers during the battle and large collection of wartime stories from both sides with fitting artefacts. Slightly oversized giftshop for "collectionneurs". Nonetheless worth a visit when visiting the Normandy-Carentan area.
  • I have been to this museum quite a few times and found it really interesting,last week I went again and was totally blown away by the experience,the simulated flight in the c47was brilliant the story of Lt Col Wollerton was very moving as he did not make it ,well done a story well told.
