Very detailed museum with audio portion. A nice addition to any D-Day tours
A Time Machine! You feel to be right there experiencing the day to day details of life for the ancestors who achieved so much on our behalf.
Fantastic museum and even if you believe you're a WW2 buff or expert, there is plenty to learn still. Excellent setup and easy walk-through. Bought joint ticket with Bayeux Tapestry. 12 euros for both for adults and kids under 10 go free, which is a bonus and would encourage adults to take the newer generations to understand the sacrifices made by ordinary people on both sides.
Good variety of period exhibits and descriptive boards, easy reading for the aficionado. Could benefit by having a simplified/fast route for those who have a limited interest, and only want the 'highlights'.
This museum is perhaps a little short on interesting equipment but the walls are packed with informative notices. The museum is also interesting for the information it gives about the Germans, both during the war and afterwards when they were held as prisoners of war. The British Military Cemetery opposite is an essential place to visit. Good parking for motorhomes available which is free during the day.
