  • A dip in a terrible time... We got into the throat to the reading of the facts before the reconstituted scenes...

  • The Museum depicts not only the Operation Overlord, but also part of subsequent operations that caused the Allied forces liberate Paris. In the Normandy region there are many museums, this is one of the smallest. At the entrance there is a souvenir shop complete enough, however with many American items. Military of any country have discount on the ticket.

  • A superb collection with many vehicles. Sherman/panzer4/Museum / sdkfz haldtracks... and even a panther who will deserve a nice restoration. :) many uniforms/helmets guns. The scenarios are top. ;)

  • Maybe the best D-Day museum if you have less than 2 hours. Excellent story-telling and many vehicles, so pretty visual museum for kids.
  • I was so stunned by all of the equipmet from WWII here! Never thought I'd ever see a Panzer V (Panther) ever! In addition to this, they also have an 76mm Gun motor Carrage (M10 "Jackson"), an uparmoured M4A3 Sherman, an M4A1 Sherman, and a Panzer IV!. P.S. - Panther is not intact BUT you can see the shell hole that took it out on the left side of tbe turret if your looking at it from the frony.
  • Awesome story telling. Little dark but otherwise great
  • Useful to get to know history before landing on beaches.
  • Went there on a horrible rainy day. Very interesting museum with lots of displays and actual tanks etc from the period. Good value to get in. Good souvenir shop as well.
