  • Impressive variety of artifacts, including ones you would never see at any other museum, a lot of thought and care went into planning it
  • Amazing history representation, far more than a mere hour tour stop gives fair justice to.
  • Excellent museum! They did a great job with their written explanations and have great displays. They have some awesome machinery on display have have great battle scenes setup so you can get a feel for what it was really like. Definitely a must to check out.
  • Sober and very well executed museum with amazing displays of allied and axis equipment and uniforms. Good movies, interviews and very well laid out.
  • One of the better museums in Normandy. They have several various vehicles including a Martin B-26 Marauder. Definitely worth visiting. Adult entry fee was 7-8 euro.
