It's a small museum but absolutely brilliant. There's so much to see and take in here. Full of facts and brilliantly tells the story of what happened here. Highly recommended. more »
What a lovely memorial to the brave men during this operation. A brilliant museum to visit. Also visit the cafe across the river well worth a visit.
Good museum set beside canal. Go wander along the canal. Very informative.7.50 euros to enter for each person. Plenty of parking. Two car parks. 1 Brasserie and Cafe over the bridge on opposite side each other.
Moving, thoughtful, well laid out and brilliantly run. Exhibits are relevant and detailed, the central area shows an excellent Imperial War Museum film and guides, in English or French, regularly gather up visitors to provide excellent walking tours of the bridge and museum. My six year old was as engaged and moved as I was.
Well worth a visit. They do tours in a variety of languages throughout the day included in the price. If you want a tour that isn't in French or English there aren't so many so it's worth checking the times, but they were running even in April. Museum itself is interesting. It's not an all day place but a few hours of a morning sort of thing. Plenty to see, obviously the history of the bridge but quite a bit of the background and side history too. Plus some other vaguely related interesting things. It's not a light-hearted "let's sit on a tank" sort of place but I'd say there were things of interest to most people.
We enjoyed this. You can see the original Pegasus bridge and it takes you through a lot of the history behind the start of d Day. Easy to get to and park.
