Liberation Museum, Cherbourg Reviews

  • Little or no information about the actual fortress and no access to the cannon batteries below (separate tour). That being said, the museum provides interesting facts about the area during the WW2. Some English information lacking here and there, but all in all good. Nice walk up and a great view of the city. Used around 45 minutes there.

  • Good steep walk, may be better to go up in a car, there is free car parking realy good view from the top see all over the town and harbour.

  • Very steep clime up to it you have to park down at the bottom of a very steep hill

  • Great view, interesting and well done displays.

  • Beautiful exposition, well put together, tells the story very well, worth the visit.
