  • Quite an amazing collection of artifacts and information- Displays are informative and well preserved. Every 30 mins, they play a 25 minute video in their small theater that covers most everything you need to know, and it alternates between French and English versions.
  • deep understanding of one of the most important period of our era. Absolutely to do.
  • Great to see and learn about, you will never forget.
  • Not very big, but nice museum. With focus on St. Laurentin-sur-Mer and also the airfield runway on the outskirts. Spend little more than an hour in the museum.
  • A good Museum overflowing with items from the time of photographs to ship at the time of the events. A most important interaction would have been 5 stars. Facility to discover however!
