This was an expensive visit to a museum we could only spend 15 minutes in. If visiting without a tour guide you miss a lot of it as you are not allowed entry to the two films and a part of the museum. It cost thirty Euros and wasn't worth it.

This was the most incredible experience. Two very informative short films and a very knowledgeable guide explained the landings and the incredible way the project was managed in such a short timescale. The quality of the exhibits and the models was excellent and made the whole event very easy to understand.

Full on fantastic museum. The details and models of everything from D Day is exquisite. Very interesting. A little expensive but worth it. My daughter and my parents loved it.

The D-Day landings are an incredible feat of organisation and bravery. The Mulberry harbour an amazing engineering achievement. This museum focusses on both and yet I say - avoid! I don't know who runs this/profits from this museum, but I am not impressed. Outdated displays, run with a chaos and arrogance that makes you gasp. If the harbour and landings... More

Small museum about the landings and the mulberry harbour created after D-Day. Was very interesting the only downside because it was small got a bit over-crowded when all the tour groups came in.

I went to this place twenty years ago and wanted to take my kids when we were in Normandy recently as I remember it as being very good. However, either the museum's changed or my standards have done up as I didn't think it was this great this time round. When we arrived there was a huge party of French... More

Good little museum for a quick history lesson. This is worth an hour or two to understand the importance of the Normandy Landings to the history of the World. Nice interpretation in English and French. Talks about all the Allies that took part not just focussing on the British and Americans. Worth the entrance fee. Don"t forget to take a... More

The museum is far too small for what it is trying to achieve; educating the younger generations about WW2. Go up the road and you reach the 360 cinema, which presents you with a sobering experience of the war which left me close to tears. When I went to the museum, however, I was greeted to an inadequately sized museum... More

We visited on July 18th 2015 on our way to St Cast in Brittany. The museum is small but full of information and as it is geographiocally located on the D Day site itself it gives visitors a great insight into what was an unbelieveable feat of engineering. Found out quite a lot of facts I didn't know which is... More
