  • Really a must see if you are doing the D-day bits. Really nice site with the original bridge at the back in excellent condition. This was the first place to be liberated during the invasion on D-day and a historic site. They have quite a lot of info on the gliders including a full size mock up and part of an original fuselage (gliders are how the troops landed here)
  • A tastefully maintained small museum to the people involved in the liberation of the surrounding area and the taking of the Pegasus Bridge.
  • Impressive, large, very friendly personal. Must go, must see
  • I was at the Pegasus Memorial on June 24, 2015 and it was one of the highlights of my Normandy battlefields tour. If you have any knowledge of WWII or D-Day or have ever watched the movie "The Longest Day", Pegasus Bridge is a must see location on the Normandy coast. To actually walk out onto the preserved original bridge where the fighting took place was both a solemn and exhilarating experience. I highly recommend a visit here to see one of the places where history was made!
  • Excellent museum, so much information and very helpful staff
