    I wish I could compare with other proposed on the topic and nearby museums. The offer is too abundant. Anyway, the one we chose was attractive by the life-size figurative scenes. This is the side that hangs the children. The start of the visit quickly summarizes the entire war lingering of course more about 1944. It's rich enough even for adults. There may be a small film that would tell the children what they do not have the patience to read or have read.

    The exhibition starts with a few boards that explain the war chronologically. This part was really crowded and difficult to move around. After that you find with war machines, tanks, clothing and so on. The museum is not very big but it has interesting things to see.

    A good museum full of vehicles and WWII material of all parties. Well setup and explained. It is a bit cramped though. A gift shop that the kids will have a hard time going through😉

    Very nice museum. A lot of vehicles on display. A must see museum if you are in Normandy.

    If you are a war technologies enthusiast you will sure love this. It also have a good description of the D-Day.

    It is very interesting and so beautiful that they got so many original vehicles. It is only vehicles though ;-)
