Trip Planner: Europe / France / Normandy / Basse-Normandie / Manche / Quineville / World War 2 Museum
Experience life under Nazi-occupied France at World War 2 Museum, a museum dedicated to documenting and displaying a timeline of World War II's most important events. When the country fell to the Germans in 1940, life changed dramatically for its citizens. Follow these changes from defeat to liberation, when in 1944 Allied forces triumphantly swept in from the beaches at Normandy. Learn about how French people coped, tried to go about their normal lives, and ultimately organized a significant resistance. Wander the recreated streets, homes, and shops designed to appear as they did during the war, complete with dioramas of everyday scenes.

Great models but could do with more explanatory signage
An entertaining step back in time to a difficult time in our history. It is a history that many of us know by heart already, but as you step through the museum and read the placards it comes alive as you see the assortment of memorabilia. For such a monumental event, that literally changed modern history, you wish the museum was much larger, but we enjoyed it.
