Superb place to visit. Excellent layout memorial stones laid where the three gliders landed. But visit the museum across the road to see the actual bridge

This is a very good and informative museum however I really felt disappointed that the tours offered are only in French. After alll it was the British who fought for it and took it and having seen tours done so much better in other places, offering French of course but also English and even German language tours.

Spent the day here with children ranging from 17 to 3. We all had a really good time. It's been a dream of mine to come here for 15 years, since I took interest in the war. Nothing was a disappointment. The museum is full of interesting information, the bridge is just a bridge but a very special bridge. We... More

Museum is located right next to the well used Pegasus bridge. The original bridge is now in the museum, but the used one is an exact copy. There are monuments at the landing places of the gliders and great cafe's located next to the bridge.

This is such a lovely memorial to those that took this bridge. For those that survived and for those who didn't but helped to liberate France and end the 2nd World War

The original bridge is in the museum, but you get the feel of the bridge and surrounding. You can drive over the bridge and park and grab some coffee or lunch.

The original bridge is in the museum which is very close to the current bridge. The current bridge looks much like the original and we saw it up twice during our visit. The museum is worth a visit and once inside take the guided tour (part of the admission price0 as it is very informative). this was our first stop... More

When you come into Ranville, the bridge greets you. It's a small but an imposing bridge. A new bridge was built in 1994 and the existing one is on the museum for all to see and walk on. The new bridge is much like its original one and gives one an idea of how things were back then. The museum... More
