If I were showing people the D-Day landings I would combine a visit to Arromanches museum, take the little train to the top of the hill, drive over to Omaha Beach, visit Point du Hoc and then the recently uncovered Maisy Battery. But this is the most important site. Not to be missed. You could spend hours here alone. A... More

Fascinating place, interesting history. We were unfortunate enough to arrive at the same time as a large party, and had no choice but to go round with them, which meant we couldn't get as close to some of the stuff as we wanted - guide was a bit hectoring every time we tried to break away, which spoiled it a...

Useful museum on the d day trail, a wealth of info, photos and detail on the mulberry harbours and men who fought here and the nations participating. A small car park outside, which if full I recommend you go up the hill to park at the 360 cinema and use the little train that runs regularly down the hill and... More

Here's a small museum where you can see excellent models of the Mulberry artificial harbor so that "fills in the blanks" of what is actually still left and visible out in the water to this day. While this may seem like a minor part of the invasion, it is actually crucial to how the thousands of troops, vehicles and weapons... More

The museum tells the story of how the artificial harbor was made. For those interested in military history and how things are made and engineering, this is a must see attraction. My wife and I were fascinated to learn and see how the Mulberry harbors were planned and constructed. The 15-minute film on the construction of the harbor was very... More

We always bring visitors to Arromanches as it is so historically important. A wonderful museum full of D-Day artifacts and an excellent model of the Mulberry harbour.First calss film show as well. I suggest that you follow this up with a visit to the Ryes War cemetery - beautifully maintained calm and quiet. It seems appropriate after the museum to... More

A cramped collection of military items. The display of the history is not up to present standard. Not worth 7,90 EUR.

The Guided Tour was very informative and there are still numerous parts of the floating harbour still in place and clearly visible (moreso when the tide is out). The exhibition and films are also very informative.
