Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 1,000+ 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.

  • Museum very accessible and well-designed, with including a course on history after the end of the 2nd world war until the fall of the Berlin wall particularly interesting. Unfortunately too high visit rate (adult €19.50)!

  • 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.
  • Worth the visit. Across the street there is a commonwealth cemetery. The museum explains very well with a lot of detail how was the DDay and the days after the landing on the beaches.
  • Some interesting displays about the timeline of the German invasion of France. There's also a video in the main theatre which alternates viewings between English French. Worth buying the twin ticket for entry into the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux for €12
  • Nice museum which displays some scenes. Much equipment & material. Opening hours are primitive: it opens at 10h and at 12h30 you get kicked out for their 1,5h lunch break. Killer for our planning :-(.
