There are so many places to see in Normandy. On the whole the museums are fantastic and hold many very interesting artefacts of DDAY. Unfortunately January is not the time to visit as the many museums are closed and don't reopen until February or March. This was a disappointment but I guess it's understandable. Nevertheless there are still things to... More

This is a great museum to visit. They show an excellent movie in different languages several times per hour. It is a small museum but it has a lot of information and displays. The gift shop has a good variety of items. There is a fee to enter the museum.

A rather old museum that asks a high entrance fee. Most displayed materials haven't been moved or touched in years and it shows. The place could do with a renovation to make everything a little bit more interesting. The only thing worthwile to visit the museum for are the scale models of the harbour.

I really liked this museum, mostly because I felt that it was quite technical. I thoroughly enjoyed understanding just how a Mulberry Harbour was put together and how it worked in practice. There are two very good presentations that you really must not miss.

As stated, I knew of the Mulberry harbours I have vague recollections of them being talked about when I was a child in 1945. This museum brought home to me the desperate need to supply the various armies involved in the Battle of Normandy and of the ingenious method by which it was brought about. The museum gives an in...

The museum itself is nice and informative, however it is simple and you pay quite a lot (€5,50 after 50% student discount) for what you get. We were done within half an hour.

From the outside it's an eyesore but inside it's very interesting. The model artificial port is extremely detailed and is set at the front overlooking the sea where it was. Several 'mulberries' are still in the sea. Visit the screening of the movie if you can. It is possible to get an audio guide in your language so you can... More
