  • It should be noted very friendly welcome and a perfect location. Our children between 3 and 6 years old have not paid the entry. It's a small museum but it faithfully evokes the events that took place on this beach. It is not always easy with young children, but they liked the multitude of objects and vehicles. There is also a projected film but the patience of children had arrived to its limits! The shop offers beautiful objects and I found prices in the whole affordable. Will definitely come back without the kids to enjoy it a little bit differently!

  • I visited this Museum in April last, and I was surprised to see thousands of archives into a single Museum... I put a photo ⬇️

  • Nice time, to see at least once. The collected archives are interesting and the implementation stages and pretty good work for a Museum of this level.

  • Great historal place. All the people with polítical responsabilities should visit it
  • A very well presented and equipped museum, everyone should visit if near by,
  • Went on my motorbike some years back, great trip! Great memory of d day and the terrible war. Look for the old structures, where the Germans had their cannons, where the allies set up the temporary floating cement docks (still there!) brought all the way from England! The new structures give you enough reading and visual material to be impressed
  • It's a good little stop and the video at the end was interesting. Just not enough though to really grab me. The one in Bayeux is better, check that one out.
  • Very intresting place of history
