    D-day experience is part of my museums reference on the theme of the second world war. We went as a family and it was a great time. The exhibits are superbly presented and immersive experience on the plane was an unforgettable moment. I recommend a visit to this museum coupled with the Normandy Victory Museum has a few km. A wonderful complementarity of 2 sites.

    Nice collection of uniforms, weapons, material with historiographical elements. The simulation aboard a C-47 troop carrier is worth. It is preceded by a presentation by a colonel in hologram. Not recommended simulation for children-7 years. The quality of the Museum is equal to number of museums that have flourished in Normandy. Interesting collection of the part of the museum devoted to German troops.

    I don't speak French so the fact it was all in English was a big plus.The Kids loved the flight simulater and it was enjoyable to walk around. Don't forget to walk around the house at Dead man's corner, We nearly did
