  • Fascinating museum about the D-Day invasion of Normandie in 1944. Be sure to watch the film. Great equipment displays. Lots of great information provided throughout the museum.
  • This museum has unique pieces from D-Day, among them; landing crafts and other gear used in that day.
  • Too expensive for what you get. OK, to go to
  • Excellent museum, lots of interesting material of the war relating to both sides. Was not too large for my 4 and 8yr olds to get too bored before the end.
  • A good review of the history.
