A museum full of artifacts and ephemera. I particularly enjoyed the scale models showing the extent and detail of Port Winston. I recommend this to anyone who wants to understand the significance of the remaining Mulberry blocks.

I was very excited to visit this museum, but unfortunately when I got inside I realized they have quite a few artifacts, but that is about it. I felt like the museum was very out of date. A great replica of the floating port and its construction too. I would honestly save your money, there are much better museums available.

This is a great museum with films and various items from WWII. It has a lot of information about Mulberry Harbor which was brought over from Britain. After browsing through this museum, go up the steep hill to the 360 degree cinema about the D day landing. Then check out the debris on the beach left over from the war.

This is a small museum that has an excellent display of how the artificial harbor was built and how it worked. There are two films also shown here. They can give you ear phones in English if it's playing in French. There are also numerous displays of artifacts, uniforms, etc. in two smaller rooms. Excellent museum.

Mulberry harbor is something you dont see much compared to the WW2 war machines and planes.So it is really interesting to see this place. If you are an engineer, I highly recommend going to the museum and seeing the movie and seeing the various displays to understand the kind of coordination you can pull off. It reminds me of some...

I have to say that at the end of the day I realised how little I knew at the beginning of the day, when it comes to the allied offensive aka 'D Day'. So, I won't spoil your day in case you, like me are pretty ignorant about the nuts and bolts of the operation. Suffice to say that this... More
