  • An indispensable complement for a patriotic pilgrimage, the reconstructions are very well made and clear in terms of explanations and the objects in exhibition help to represent the conditions of the time both on the civilian side and on the military side. The small film at the end of the visit is also very interesting.

  • It's a small exhibition but worth to see it if you vidit this landing beach. But don't miss the beach itself to experience how the marines felt 75 years ago  more »
  • Tells the american story of D Day quite well, and adds the other countries involved quite nicely. Nice objects gathered from the war.  more »

  • Amazing experience. The museum is huge. It takes around two to three hours to visit. You can park your car easily. I learned a lot about WW2. Unique footage of the war and a lot of objects from WWI WWII and the cold War.
  • Very good museum, lots of different stuff though some of the paths are a bit hard to see, though there were nice depictions of war with the mannequins.
  • Good exhibits of Allied and Axis equipment and ordnance. But otherwise not much going on here. Nice Pak 43 on the grounds.
  • Small museum presenting small scenes of the landing of the allies during the operation Overlord. The film at the end of the visit presents Operation Overlord and is very well done. It presents better than the scenes exposed the scale of the operation and the vision of the operation through testimonies of soldiers or nurses who participated in the operation. Enjoy this tour of the museum and the beach to better understand this battle and the importance it had to win the second world war and the sacrifices that were necessary.
  • Good place educating the Normandy landings of WWII
