Musee Du Debarquement Reviews & Ratings
Best museum in Normandy. Mainly because United States army medics patched up a teenage boy wounded during the assault. After a 6 month stay at an army hospital in England he returned home, eventually became mayor, and pushed through developing a world class museum and memorial dedicated to the greatest army, of the greatest country (USA) in the history of the universe.
A great museum to help you understand what went on here on June 6th 1944. Well laid out and good use of film and sound, plus one of the very few Mitchell Marauders left in the world. Definitely worth a visit.
Good museum. Seems a bit more concentrated on US Navy (Army family). A good place to visit. Worth the stop while visiting the area.
Every human being should understand the tragedy and loss that took place during these missions. Even though not everything that took place on D-Day went as planned the men who landed on these beaches gave their lives away for the freedoms of other people and that selflessness should never be forgotten regardless of nationality or race.
This was a great museum. The video was well done and very informative.
