  • Worth visiting if you are interested in WWII history as well as the 1927 first postal flight of the "America" from the US to Paris that soft-crashed on the beach of Ver Sur Mer on a foggy night. And Gold Beach was the spearhead for the British forces on D-Day in 1944.
  • Only reason for low rating is we didn't get in! They close from 12.30 until 2.00, please be advised.

  • Informative little museum part of civic library
  • excellent museum on gold beach landings very informative staff
