Impressive displays and a very informative guided tour of the museum. I think they have tours in a number of languages. I started out with little knowledge of the Normandy landings and not very much interest, but the tour was fascinating and I now want to find out more.

This is an excellent museum. It contains the best models of the Mulberry Harbor in the area. It also has other interesting exhibits. Visit Arromanches, walk amongst the remaining sections of the Mulberry at low tide. It is such a neat historical experience, and it is not to be missed.

The museum is right on the seafront at arromanche and has a view all across the beach. There is a large model, which with the films tells the story in wonerful detal.

The museum gives a very interesting account of the mulberry harbour and its construction and the film showing its construction makes very interesting viewing, however, it seems to me that, as with all these D Day beach exhibitions , it is nowadays very much propaganda. I visited these beaches 25 years ago and was so moved that I wanted to... More

A must see as it puts all the Mulberry harbour into perspective, shows the human spirit at its best, faced with adversity. The museum staff were on hand and volunteered information and really gave an interested aptitude.

This is a small museum dedicated to the Mulberry Harbors that were built and towed across the channel for the D-Day invasion. The models are OK but kind of juvenile, they would be great for kids, not so much for adults. There are the standard military equipment displays that are here too, much of is has nothing to do with... More

There are some information signs as you walk along the sea from towards the museum, which describe the history of bathing at Arromanches, or the fashion in the days of the belle epoque. As you then look out to sea you can't help noticing that there are some sizable artifacts that aren't getting a mention. This must be to avoid... More
