  • We'll go back again, for sure. A museum cared in every detail. A reception personalized (except summer). Top!

  • The original museum has been extended and upgraded. This site is not to be missed in any trip to Normandy. 
  • NO MILITARY DISCOUNT! Was an unreal place thoroughly enjoyed this museum... has great ties to the Band of Brothers series!

  • A superb museum (and shop!). Loved the DC3 experience.
  • Small museum on an authentic location, known as "Dead Man's corner", focussing on day-landing troops. Large room-full displays of German paratroopers during the battle and large collection of wartime stories from both sides with fitting artefacts. Slightly oversized giftshop for "collectionneurs". Nonetheless worth a visit when visiting the Normandy-Carentan area.
  • I have been to this museum quite a few times and found it really interesting,last week I went again and was totally blown away by the experience,the simulated flight in the c47was brilliant the story of Lt Col Wollerton was very moving as he did not make it ,well done a story well told.
  • An excellent collection of high quality original artefacts superbly displayed. Also backed up by the very good C-47 simulator which our little Anglo American group from Toccoa GA enjoyed enormously. Tim Green Trustee Kennet Valley At War Trust Museum Littlecote House England 506th PIR HQ
  • Astounding collection of material. The section "My owner was ..." is unique.
