  • One of the best war museums I've ever seen. Worth the 3 hours to get all the detail put into it!
  • Nice place to know more about WWII history.
  • Very nice.
  • Has a vast collection of weapons, uniforms and objects from the landings of 1943. The trail is well laid out, understandable and detailed. Simulation of aerial bombardment is exciting. There are also many statues and reconstructions of life-size environments, scale models, collections of weapons, even heavy.
