  • Lovely kept Museum within the original bunkers. Lots of recreated rooms teaching about the station in particular and radar technology in general. Good parking, friendly staff, toilets and a very small shop.
  • Interesting and captivating. The museum is fascinating and has many things to engage your feelings. We take Radar as a given identity, but this was new technology in WWll. Very pleased I went.
  • Great little museum and worth a visit especially if you are interested in early radar technology with an interesting display in what was the main bunker on site of the very beginning of the invention of radar on and up to the present day. Also has a good display of how the control bunker would have looked on D day itself very interesting recommend a visit.
  • A great hidden gem on the Normandy museum circuit devoted to the history of radar. The staff were friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable. I did the tour using an Android app that guided you from station to station - a few teething problems, but it did the job. The museum is well worth a visit.
  • a hidden gem in Normandy. Radar played a critical role in World War II. this museum is located in a real radar station built by Nazi during World War II. Le mure de Atlantique. the war was fierceless and detecting enemy aircraft was really important for the Nazi. we got a long way to reach tiny radar we use today. it is also about the frequency. as a radar enthusiast, this museum was really enjoyable for me
