Museum of the Battle of Normandy, Bayeux

(4.2/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
One of the best on the topic, Museum of the Battle of Normandy has a good balance of explanations of the infamous D-Day battle and interesting artifacts both small and large. Outside the museum are four armored vehicles: a Sherman tank, a Crocodile tank trailer, and Marder and M-10 Hellcat tank destroyers. Inside are a self-propelled 105 mm howitzer, a Quad-50 caliber anti-aircraft "meat chopper," a radio truck, a bulldozer, and several other large items.

  • In this region, everyone thinks the June 6, 1944. The advantage of this museum is to relate the past since a little before June 1944 until the end of August, when allied forces were finally able to lead. A lot of war material as well as more related to everyday life objects are exposed.

  • The rain forced us to take refuge in this museum that we have not regretted! What we have seen, read, studied we found it very interesting and helped us clarification and complements on what we knew of the landing. Visit to strongly advise!

  • 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.
