The exhibit was good but as others have said was a bit expensive for the whole family. However had a good exhibit of the paratroopers actions in the D-day invasion.

I was looking forward to visiting here for a long time and it didn't disappoint. Easy to find just along the road from the working bridge easy walking distance. There's a reasonable size car park with no fees. We were there in September so it wasn't very busy so when in the museum part it was good to just take our time and have a good look at the exhibits which were very informative,also the video in the middle of the museum was very good we'll worth the time to have a look. Out on the outside of the exhibition the original bridge was set up with other part's concerning tanks,guns and the like. All in all if you are visiting the Normandy beaches the Pegasus bridge is a must.
Really great experience! The museum was well displayed and informative without being over burdening. The outside exhibitions were also brilliant. Well worth a visit. The staff spoke very good English and an added bonus was that our dog was allowed in too!
