  • Really not to be missed if we value our freedom! It's a privelige to be able to honour our great men who were all heroes!  more »
  • A very interesting place to visit as part of any battlefield tour to Normandy. One of the crucial sites as part of the Normandy invasion, and definitely worth stopping at!  more »

  • 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.
  • Great place to visit lots of stories brought to life, only complaint no air conditioning on a 39degree day
  • It tells the story of the events leading to its capture, some nice artifacts, the bridge itself been the main one
  • A place of true bravery and heroism. May their sacrifice never be forgotten.
  • Excellent museum with a much needed focus on the eastern airborne objectives. Some real good nuggets of info about the support elements of the invasion.
