Memorial Of Caen, Caen Reviews

  • One of the best museums in Normandy. So worthwhile and so informative. The topics of war are dealt with sensitively and kindly and the translations from French to English are done well and do not lose their meaning. A very humbling experience but one I feel that every European should do. This is my third visit to Mémorial and I still feel I'm learning new things.

  • Fantastic museum and well worth the visit. My advice would be to get there early so that to avoid the big crowds. My only comment would be that the exhibit for the actual Normandy invasion was a bit short. Great for any history buff and don't forget to explore the gardens and German bunker outside.

  • We took a guided tour of the museum, Normandy beaches, American grave site and the artificial harbor. We spent about a half day at the museum, including lunch at their very good restaurant. The museum was kind of crowded with several different student groups. It was helpful and very informative to have had a guide. I felt the history of WW II from beginning to end was very well presented.

  • Must do. We spent 4 hours here and could have spent longer. Fiance is a WWII buff; I am not. However, we both really enjoyed it and thought it was a exceptionally well curated museum.

  • Excellent experience. The displays tell the European story from 1918 forward very well. Perfect for learning the history and being able to put the story in proper place and understand. Information I have not seen elsewhere
