  • Very interesting. Appreciated how it told the story of occupation to liberation. Also lovely to see how the models were made :-)
  • I fully recommend doing the Normandy beach landings. Very moving. They were so young as well ....
  • Very interesting to see what really happened on the D-day. Recommended to do first the museum and then a walk on the beach to have a good impression of how it was.
  • 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.
