This museum is a must for anyone who wants to know about the realities of the Battle for Normandy. The exhibits of photographs and the personal memorabilia are very moving and many people will leave with a tear or two in their eyes.

This museum was well worth the visit. Impressive displays inside as well as outdoors. Located right at Pegasus Bridge and close to other key Canadian sites in the Airborne Bridgehead at Varaville, Le Mesnil, and the Ranville Canadian War Cemetery.

The first bridge to be taken by the allies and a museum of the allied liberation of Europe. This is a very interesting collection and includes a replica of the giant allied gliders as well as tanks and the original Pegasus bridge itself.

This museum is one of the best in Normandy and high marks to Mark Worthington and his staff for the consistent high quality of tour guides and the high standards the museum maintains overall. A must-see visit as part of any D-Day tour. Remember to look for Bill Millin's pipes.

Great place to visit and find out about the British Glider Forces of world war two. Lots to see both inside and out. A couple of hours will get you around this attraction.

Small but interesting museum. Worth having a guide to tell you the stories behind the bridge and the gliders.

A great tribute to the paratroopers and gliders, I must warn that the museum video made the majority wipe tears away. You can wander over the original bridge safe in the museum grounds, stand next to war memorabilia and drive over the substitute to get to a couple of snack restaurants. Remember to follow the dove sights so you don't... More
