This museum tells the whole story of the D-Day landings, the campaign in Normandy, and beyond. It is completely absorbing and moving.
We visited museum and also took a guided tour to the D-Day beaches. The guided tour was great and very informative, maybe a bit too short and fast, but considering the fact that on the same day we also had to visit the museum you just can't stay longer on the beaches. After short lunch in cafeteria we started watching... More
We visited here with our eleven month old baby so didn't spend as long as we could have. Buggies aren't allowed in the museum but I think they loan/hire out baby carriers (we had our own). The museum is laid out so you follow a path through the various areas which cover a wide array of war based topics. The... More
We took the 111 euro tour on June 10, 2012. Our wonderful guide, Jean Francois, first took us to the Mémorial de Caen Museum where we toured the Museum, and were treated to a wonderful lunch. Then Jean Francois took us in a minivan, visiting the German Bunker sites at Longues-sur-Mer and the artificial harbor the British constructed at Arromandes.... More
Wasn't expecting this museum to be quite this large. There is a LOT of information to take in, loads to see and memorial gardens as well. I think this will take a second viewing from our family to appreciate just how much there is. What we did see was very good, there is a lot of information about the plight... More
This is my fourth visit since the 1990's, the first time with my wife who doesn't necessarily share my WW2 interest. I found that a number of the spaces had been updated since my last visit and the Cold War exhibits were really interesting. The museum is well laid out with an excellent cafeteria with sandwiches made to order and... More
The Caen memorial museum is a must-see for any travelers interested in world war II. we found the museum to contain an amazing amount of items that we had never seen before. Content soldiers carried onto D-Day beaches in their kits and backpacks, Jewish yellow cloth stars, many films including the bombing of Caen. It was well done and there... More
Booked the museum's D-Day Tour though a third party which included the train tickets. The musuem staff were there waiting at the Caen train station. We went straight to the museum and got about a 2 hour guided tour then had a great lunch at the museum resturant, which was included as part of the tour. After lunch, we got... More
This is a great memorial and museum. Lots of information and very interesting facts about WWII. Children are not allowed in but they have a day care on site. Excellent.
This is a very impressive memorial of the second world war. Access from the motorway and parking are easy and the memorial itself is well laid out. If you are at all interested in WWII, this really is a mandatory visit.
