Very humbling experience. Must see. Visitors centre has a fantastic and informative display. You should allow at least 3 hours for the visit. There is direct pedestrian access to Omaha beach also.

This place is actually the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery from WWI. It is an amazing beautiful location that is somewhat remote. I highly recommend visiting. You can also get facts and figures from the American Battle Monuments site. I was on the way to Paris to pick up the wife and daughter and go to Normandy. Would loved to have showed... More

I had the opportunity to visit the American Cemetery on a school trip and I am so glad I took the chance! You start your visit to the cemetery by going through a small museum that can give you a little background on the history of the American influence in Normandy. There are also some very touching exhibits that are... More

One of the most beautiful places we've seen and extremely humbling! A MUST see for all Americans visiting this area of France. Exquisitely manicured. A very fitting resting place for our men who gave their lives for freedom!

We almost stumbled upon this cemetery, having driven close and thought we would pop in! Don't expect a large village fanfare just a few signs, then BAM, you're here. Amazingly well kept, pristine, poignant and a lovely memorial to the fallen American who rest in France, having lost this lives September to November 1918. Time well spent in these tranquil... More

Quiet and vast cemetery with perfectly manicured gardens and white marble headstones of over 14000 people who died for their country during WW1. The cemetery is like a living monument to honour these people who never made it back home. Rest in peace all who were placed here.

We travel a lot by car in France and have visited 4 American cemeteries, including Normandy. They are always so well done with respect that you cannot help but be awed. The superintendents are knowledgable and so willing to answers questions and chat. Be sure and stop in if you go.

Inspiring and emotional visit. This cemetery honors the World War One soldiers from the Meuse Argonne battles of the Autumn and fall of 1918. A meticulously maintained and landscaped. The Superintendent , Mr Bedford is an expert on the battle and provided some keen insight to the battle and the subsequent establishment of the cemetery. The cemetery is located on... More
