  • A well presented insight to the D-Day Airborne Landings with much to see and experience. Whilst in the area also visit the Commonwealth War Cemeteries at Ranville (2,236 buried) and Bayeux (4,144...

  • One of the best military/history museums my wife and I have visited and we've been to a few. Tell's remarkable, personal, stories about those involved in this action as well as an incredible amount of factual information well presented. The physical exhibits and the links to real people had us fascinated. It's position adjacent to the actual site allows the visitor to learn then actually walk the ground being described. Well worth the entry fee, I'd visit again.
  • Definitely worth a visit. Film to explain about why Pegasus bridge and area was so important and a guided tour to give a more detailed view on some of the exhibits. This includes the actual bridge (and why it's no longer in use). Friendly staff, who are very knowledgeable. Good displays, with a focus on the soldiers who came in by glider.
