Museum of the Battle of Normandy, Bayeux

(1,200+ reviews on the web)
Monument Historic Site
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.

  • Good museum and good content. Layout of exhibits and boards could be improved though and made easier for children to follow. Seems a little dated.
  • The best place to learn about the d day landings. A must visit.
  • Very much enjoyed this museum, nicely combined with visit to Bayeux. Extremely detailed and informative.
  • Good museum, informative film and a selection of historic vehicles.
  • Tastefully done Museum - Lest We Forget.
