Very moving and informative tour. A long day full of information. The building itself was impressive along with the rest of the tour

Normandy is one of the most emotional places I have ever been to. If you are an American and patriotic, this is a must see. In addition it is in beautiful location. Rich with history of WWII it is time well spent going to visit.

A fairly small museum, and some time periods are not well covered, but it is interesting and worth going to, especially since I assume anyone going to Caen is going to see the castle anyway!

You can learn a lot about Normandy in a short time here. It start way back in the stone ages and gives you a good idea of the past and present.

This was a great museum. It's well done & very interesting. The underground section used by the Germans was especially unusual to see. We definitely recommend taking a day from Paris to do the Normandy tour. It is well worth your time.

A very enlightening and a very sobering exhibit. So much history and so many stories of those who fought for freedoms. This is a must see!

We spent a couple of hours strolling around the grounds of the castle & museum. The museum was not bad but not the most interesting museum to vist.
