Renamed in 1944, the name of Pegasus Bridge honors British airborne forces who wore a shoulder emblem of a flying Pegasus during the D-Day invasions. You can view the original bridge, built in 1934, in the park grounds of the Pegasus Museum. Some people call this the "Bridge of the Longest Day," due to its capture by British forces during their most famous mission.

Instructif et intéressant pour les enfants et adultes. Site propre et agréable. Toutefois attention aux prix excessifs dans les boutiques, un peu honteux. more »Informative and interesting for children and adults. Clean and nice site. However attention to prices in shops, a little ashamed.

Voor personen die interesse hebben in WO2, is dit mijns inziens een must see lokatie. De pegasus brug was op D day een belangrijke schakel voor de Geallieerden.

This bridge had to be conquered, and intact until reinforcements came. The bridge is a few years ago completely replaced, and the original condition 50 meters away in a magnificent museum, specially for this bridge, with lots of info and weaponry. I was on 15-09-2017 there, and got a beautiful gift, there was a veteran of 96 years, which there are full of passion his story was about to talk about his attack on the bridge, RESPECT.

seen the story told on tv and in film many times but only here can you appreciate what a difficult mission/objective this was by seeing the size of the landing site.

Great museum, with great stories from the guide. Original bridge can be found at the museum.

Iconic location of the British liberation of the first building in occupied Europe.

Historical bridge from WW2. Good cafe choices too.
Michel VaudrozSeptember 9, 2017The original bridge was dismantled and moved to the Museum. The new looks the same as the old, but it is adapted to the current needs. It's one of the must-see places we visit the beaches of Normandy. Remember Bill Millin
