Memorial Of Caen, Caen Reviews
one of the best museum I have ever visit, we have two kids 2 & 6 years and we were worried that we will enjoy with them as most of the stuff are related to historical stories but we found that there are a wonderful area for kids full of every thing they would love to play with so we left them and we did enjoy all the time without crying or worry about them. The memorial is perfect for those who would like to see the flow f the history before and after 2WW. I really recommend to visit if you were in Caen r even in Normandy.
We didn't pay to go inside the museum, so this is a review of the free stuff available at this memorial. We did go inside the WWII German bunker on the back side of the memorial. They had several areas recreated to look like they did during WWII, several cases of various artifacts, some photos, and informational signs. It was interesting and informative. We also wandered the American garden there. It has a beautiful waterfall and pond as well as beautiful plants and walkways. A lovely place to wander and soak in the greenery.
Excellent museum detailing the events leading to WW2, with details of the war and many personal experiences. Well designed with English translations. I hope no one has to experience such horrors again.
THIS is the WWII memorial/museum to visit! I learned more at this museum that any other, and high school history. Well thought out, and well laid out path through the museum. I would suggest allowing all day just for the museum alone, we didn't do that and I feel missed out on several of the exhibits. The beach tour was great as well, our timing worked out during the American Cemetery tour, and we were there for the 4:30 pm flag ceremony. WOW!!!
A very large and interesting museum. It describes history in detail from the end of WWI to the end of WWII, with a separate exhibit all about the Cold War. There are a couple of vehicles on display, though the information with pictures is the main attraction. There is also a theater with a 20 minute film about WWII. Audio guides are available in a lot of different languages, which are definitely worth it. I recommend taking your own headphones with you rather than having to hold the device to your ear.
