First stop after driving off the ferry. Only had 10 minutes in the museum before I got told my car had been broken into on the carpark opposite the museum. The overgrown plants screen it from view from the road. Our car and a Dutch car were targeted by the local thieves leaving the French cars alone. Never got to... More

Loved the museum - could have spent hours there. Bought mementoes including a Pegasus Bridge pen - absolute rubbish, broke within a month. Such a shame.

extremely interesting museum offering a lot of personal insights into the events in Normandy. Very interesting movie as well on display. This museum offers really the opportunity to see the men behind the soldiers.. some young and unexperienced .. others experienced and strategists... very engaging. The outside view on the original bridge is also very impressive

After having gone through admission, the museum was really interesting, accompanied by the little cinema area in the middle. Then the tour takes you outside, where there is a small park where dogs can run free(dogs are allowed throughout the whole attraction). On the other side of the park, there are little museum-type sheds that you can go in. Then... More

We were recommended to visit this museum by the guide who showed us the American Beaches for the D-Day landings. Having felt that many areas of Normandy largely ignore the British and Commonwealth contribution to the Battle of Normandy we were delighted to visit such an excellent museum documenting the incredible story of the taking and holding this end of...

A wonderful piece of WW2 history. The stories behind this bridge are so interesting and unbelievable. Lovely shops and restaurants around the bridge to sit. A must stop if you are visiting the nearby area.

I did not know until recently that a childhood family friend was such a hero. When we grew up in Port Moody, B.C., Canada he was just a "Pip Pip tally Ho" Englishman who was a friend of the family. Jim Wallwork was the true definition of a hero. He flew in all four airborne allied assaults: Sicily, D-Day, Market... More
