Memorial Of Caen Reviews & Ratings
This is an outstanding museum. Especially for Americans French, or English who are interested in the history of WW2 and a refresher on why we have democracy in Europe today. A spellbinding history lesson for everyone.
Very informative. Great displays for WWI, WWII, and the Cold War. All exhibits were good. Some were rushed or felt like they jumped sections (for instance, going from mid-WWII to the end). The bunker was slightly disappointing as I believed it was more of a rustic bunker. Lots of cool and authentic artifacts, films, and informative plaques.
Suggestions on other sites of only needing maybe 3 hours here ... you definitely need longer than that. We were here all day and went round all the bits of the museum and exhibitions, the bunker, the gardens and listened to the audioguide. Excellent, well thought out and informative museum.
I think the museum is a bit overpriced compared to what other world war two museums in Bretagne offer. What we appreciate is that information was presented in a chronological way, it was very detailed and events were well described. In my opinion is a bit too much text and too little entertaining. You should take your self one day to read text on the walls. Do not miss the bunker.
A massive gathering of documents, movies and pictures. Plan at least 4 to 5 hours if you want to explore the whole place 5 stars !
