  • First time I have visited this museum since its opening, a must for all those interested in the equipment of all combatants during the D - Day landings.Beautiful layout and great range of artefacts.  more »
  • A good museum that tells about the time from landing until Paris liberation. Nicely built environments full of details. Easy to follow a red thread. Just follow the path from start to finish.

  • It is a beautiful Museum filled with beautiful pieces of original Collections. This is the charm of this museum. There are an incredible number of gears, personal effects, weapons, reproduction and staging. The receptionist told me 45 minutes of visit, one can easily pass the double for enthusiasts who take the time to look at the details and read the panels very rich in information. I recommend you to take your time as €8.50 for 45 minutes of visit it is better to go to the Memorial of Caen and pay €20 for a minimum of 4H. Nice work for the setting up of this Museum and also for the restoration of objects and gear!

  • First class museum! Great displays and dioramas. Very well put together. My only complaint is that they were under renovation while we were there. The whole museum smelled of paint fumes. Despite that, they have many great vehicles that I have not seen anywhere else, and some that are extremely rare. I'm sure once the renovations are complete this one is going to be a crowd favorite. The thing I enjoyed most was that under the description of each vehicle and some artifacts was a small story as to the circumstances about when and where it was found and how the museum acquired it.
  • Beautiful museum with amazing artifacts and informative descriptions. The building itself is well-kept and the proximity to Omaha makes it a good part of your day trip to WWII sights.
  • This museum is a great place to see many of the artifacts and vehicles that were used in the war. It was very informative and being so near to Omaha Beach and the American War Cemetery it is a can't miss museum. I would go here again the next time I am in the area.
  • a little over commercial but if you pay attention and take your time, it’s well worth the visit.
  • American testament to their contribution to the greatest achievement of the twentieth century. One of the must visit D Day landing sites if you're in the area. The American Cemetery is a short walk away and also worth the experience. Here, at 16:00 the American flag is lowered to the poignant strains of The Last Post.
