  • 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!
  • A comprehensive museum about a very important part of D-Day. It has a good collection of items from the time but the real highlight is the stories and personal elements that are retold. Make sure you look outside to see the glider, tank and the original bridge.
  • Very Nice museum a most visit in normandy
  • Pegasus kicked off D-Day. The ingenuity is amazing.
