  • The Museum has to see in Normandy.. the collections presented are extraordinary and cocorico there is the Belgian head of this fabulous Museum, the trip in C47 will make you beat and frankly it is very successful!

  • If you wonder what the paratroopers could feel while waiting to arrive at the drop-off site, I will advise you on this unique experience. After a bluing briefing you embark aboard a C47 for the Norman beaches

  • It is an experience but for me who am handicapped it was difficult. I will gladly revive it by installing myself a little better so as not to slip and to have the sensation of falling. I recommend it to everyone to better understand the landing.

  • Worth every penny! Do the airborne mission simulator...super cool! They even have a store now on site selling reproduction and equipment for enthusiasts and reenactors. My son and I loved the experience!
  • The museum has been renovated and all the collection that was in the small house Dead Man's Corner, apart of the shop, has moved to the big hall. It includes a C-47 Skytrain you get inside and simulates a flight.
  • Excellent exhibition in the old house and the simulator was extra special
  • Brilliant museum and new C47 ride experience was fantastic but don't go on if you are motion sick all for 12 Euros
  • The new building with the C47 simulator is excellent. A fantastic collection of original uniforms and equipment, with an amazing simulated flight into Normandy on a real C47. Well worth a visit.
