  • This museum has a wonderful set of original artefacts of the fighting around D Day and is set up to help you visualise what it must have been like. This is all enhanced by a great Flight Simulator...

  • This was VERY american orientated (near UTAH beach) and the Brits hardly mentioned so would not be my choice to revisit.

  • Very good experience, I would recommend taking the full tour for the full effect, the 3D movie is mostly informative instead of the action I expected, but in fact it was better this way. The simulation is not extremely realistic (thank god) but certainly a nice experience, especially when you bring kids . All the other information and exhibitions of the museum and the dead mans corner are very detailed with personal stories behind the items .
  • This was the best first stop in Normandy area. The movie really helped explain the history. There is also a shop in site that sells actual and replica WWII military items.
