  • Only had 30 mins to spend here but could have spent at least 2 hours as I love to read every plaque. The museum is fantastic really great displays of equipment in both mint and relic condition. Excellent displays of infantry equipment in an easy-to-follow layout inside. Good number of gun and armour examples outside. Highlight was being able to stand on the original Pegasus Bridge - WOW. Also able to see the remains of one of the gliders used on the day - huge honour. Would definitely come back next time.
  • Well worth a visit! Fantastic little museum with a pretty big collection of items from the battle. Loads to look at, plenty of stories and a short film but it's not too overwhelming. Outside there's the bridge, a Horsa glider and a few larger exhibits. Really clean and well looked after, it's a fitting tribute to the men who fought and died here. Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. Little gift shop has a good selection. Tickets are very good value as well. Highly recommended.
