Try to avoid the crowds from the buses and see the films in English, at least one of them. The monters are informative and well made. They had a leaflet in Swedish as well. The toilets were clean and they had parking just outside. He parking was of free of charge and one has to pay from 9 in the... More

This museum was good but like some other comments a bit disorganized. Good overall perspective of the logistical efforts that went into the landing. Good views from the windows. Was very crowded when we arrived. We were with a group so we just walked in. If you want to see what is left of the Mulberry Harbor then take a... More

This place needs and education in manners. The staff are ill-informed or is it just that they don't care? I wonder. Firstly we were told that there was an tour/explanation in English, that after the French one that takes 20 minutes there would be an announcement when the English one would start. The only announcements we ( 4 persons )... More

There's lots of information here, although it seemed a bit disorganized; more a collection of artifacts and photographs on display than what you would find, say, in the American Cemetery museum, where a coherent story is told in order of occurrences. But the exhibits of the incredible engineering it took to land troops and vehicles in an artificially created harbor... More

Lots to see in the museum and it's right on the beach where history was made. A must to visit to find out about the events of 6 June

We thought the museum and film presentations were very good. All exhibits had English translations and the staff informed us when the English presentations for the films were on. We were given a A4 leaflet with descriptions of the main showcases in English. The views of what is left of the mulberry caissons could be seen from the windows of... More

As an ex-serviceman of a later vintage I had long wanted to visit the Normandy beaches and the surrounding sites of interest. A keen student of WWII and in particular the battle for Europe and Operation Overlord I was fascinated to visit sites that I had read so much about. It was all very moving and poignant, especially the WGC... More

This is hands down the best place to start your tour. The efficient way the museum is designed adds so much to what occurred during the first days and months of the landing. We especially enjoyed the visual moving representative dioramas of how the Mulberry Beach platforms were assembled. You must get a docent if possible as these folks really... More

I don't exaggerate when I say this museum is the best museum I visited in the Normandy area. The information provided in the museum is exceptional and narrates the whole invasion from the point of view of every country involved in it. This is unlike other museums who tend to portray one country's influence being more important than the rest.... More
