  • It really helps a person to understand what the soldiers had to go through when you visit a museum like this. A very moving experience and so pleased we visited. 
  • Very beautiful place. Definitely recommend if you are close by to visit. The memorial and graves are very gracefully done. 
  • For all those who want to discover, not to forget the sacrifices our ancestors for freedom. This museum allows us to put us in this time of fun, beautifully presented way. Not to be missed during a stay in the region

  • 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.
