I find it very difficult to understand how anyone can fail to be moved when visiting this museum. The museum is not just a collection of exhibits; it is a memorial to the brave soldiers who landed in six gliders just after midnight on June 6th 1944 in order to capture the two bridges. This was the first step in... More

The original bridge was removed 1993 and a wider bridge opened in its place in 1994. The old bridge was deteriorating and a wider road needed (today it is very busy). The replacement has been built in a style as close to the original as possible to give a good insight as to how the river would have looked, with... More

Although I didn't get the chance to spend as much time here as I'd have liked, I was so so glad I had the opportunity to wander around and see this hugely historically important area. The original bridge is still viewable within the museum but as I didn't have time to go in a cheeky little glance over the hedge... More

This for me was the high light of our trip. Everything is laid out in such a small area and it is very easy to see exactly what happened on the night in question. It really came to life when we were there, especially as some of the people involved are still there running the cafe. The museum is great... More

The visit to the Pegasus Museum marked the end of a 5 day road trip for me & my 75yr old father taking in a family member war grave in Northern Paris, the D Day beaches & the Hillman Bunkers. Pegasus was by far the highlight of the museum visits. Everything about it is class. Exhibits;Information;Staff. We were lucky enough... More

Please forgive my patriotic review of this memorial and museum, I was born after the war my sad came back. And my uncle's did to as a family we were very fortunate. But Normandy cares for thousands of our fathers from GB, Canada, USA and the French. This amazing act of bravery recorded on this site should never be forgotten... More

The museum has loads of interesting items and it's beside a legendary historic monument. Which makes this worth the visit.
