  • The Museum is not very large but rich in explanations, in objects. Beautiful reconstructions. Short film at the end of the visit. On the other hand, it's very cold. Description in french and English.

  • 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!
