  • If you want to understand this phase of the Normandy landings with the battle of the hedgerows, this museum is a must. The staging is very well done close to reality no doubt. Do not forget the Museum outside vehicles, which are very well preserved. Course is no longer the exclusive Museum of military vehicles in front (2 years ago) but the collections presented are not to be missed.

  • Many designs to the details place us the sequence of the difficulties faced by our liberators in the Norman bocage; It's the battle of the hedgerows makes us discover this new Museum on the site of a former American airfield built in June 1944.

  • Museum is closed! No more tanks there, just a regular d-day museum
  • A great collection of vehicles (Allied & German). During my trip to Normandy I saw nearly every museum about D-Day and I can say that this one is one of the best. Its abolutely worth a visit. 5 Stars !
  • Most enjoyable museum I've visited in ages! Had to be hurried out by my family as I was taking too long reading every detail. 10/10, super interesting.
  • Awesome tank museum, paid for the tank ride and it was definitely worth the money! It's a shame they're closing..
  • Visited the Tank Museum today as part of a week long stay in Normandy visiting many sites of WWII historic significance. The museum is superb and has many armoured and unarmored vehicles used by both the allied armies and those of the axis forces. A personal favourite is in fact the GIANT M26 Tank Recovery Vehicle. Its an absolute monster of a thing and the vehicle sitting on its trailer is a mere toy in comparison. A lot of the vehicles are reproductions/replicas but this in no way takes away from the experience as there is just as many authentic pieces from the period including a knocked out Panzer IV in the same condition today as the day it turned its last wheel or track or whatever you get the picture. I cannot comment on the rides which are offered at the museum but can only imagine a tank ride or a flight over the area would be fantastic. Full facilities are available on site as well as a well presented gift shop and helpful and courteous staff. Cost of an adult ticket was €9 bargin! Would have paid double and left happy.
