  • I'd never expected to see a German WWII bunker in such a good state of preservation. The view from the range finder floor is stunning on a good day and, in historical context, chilling. There's a good selection of items and photos to see inside with interpretative panels. Loses a star for having no free parking as advertised on their website (unless you have a motorbike) and no soap in the toilets.
  • A bit on the pricey side compared to other museums here, but well worth it. The bunker is in great condition and there is lots and lots of weapons and other WWII material on display. In the yard you will find a landing boat two canons and two tanks + a tankjeep. The souvenir shops are hard to get out of😉
  • The museum is covering the history of the bunker really good. Good background infos about the bunker and its role. Compared to lots of other museums i liked the size and the good coverage of a subject. Worth a visit!
  • Amazing museum. It was really interesting to see and learn something about the ww2 at the landing zone in the Normandie. You see here a lot of old things from German soldiers.T he price for the entrence is ok.
  • Great museum, i like it so much :)
