This is a don't miss place and the 360 degree cinema up the road. The bravery of the American troops is unbelievable. The ingenuity of the Mulberry harbours and other war machines is hard to imagine how it was all put in place. What a great logistical exercise probably not possible today. Do go if you are American.

Hans who runs this museum has met lots of veterans who over there years have donated their precious memoirs from their time in the 2nd world war and D-day landings, horrific tales of death and happier memories too, I feel its a bit more personal than the big museum on the seafront.

To review D-Day some 70 years ago is daunting. This museum talks explicitly about the plans for the American/British invasion of the Normandy coast to begin to take back Europe from the Nazis. Many other brave soldiers from other countries joined in the war effort in a few days after the initial assault. I believe it was Winston Churchill's original... More

Having been here a few times to Arromanche I was pleasantly surprised and and a little intrigued to see this museum sat in the middle of the town. I would rate this as my favourite of our few days here doing the d-day museums. Hans provided a wealth of information into his labour of love and provided a real personal... More

We've visited the Librators Museum today. Hans, the owner, gave us a guided tour. In Dutch (especially handy for the kids...). He shared so many stories of veterans which made it a very impressive visit. With Hans you don't see just the uniform but the men behind them and the stories of D Day. I think it says it all... More

There is no way one goes around with a smile on their face. A true feeling one goes through when they visit this place can be seen on every face. Share a thought and feel blessed of how happy we are now.

it is a small museum with personal collection. I think the owner really put lots of effort to collect all of these. Really personal with lots of details, comparing with those public museums.

Amazing to visit and remember just what happened here. Informative and well presented displays which made me proud and emotional but glad to have visited and remembered those brave men and women both forces and civilians.

They have done an outstanding job in this museum. This little town on D Day in 1944 was in the thick of things. So much happened during that period, and the museum has done an outstanding job of bringing history back to life. The most interesting is the Mullberry Landing system they employed to get equipment to the beaches after... More

We turned up late at night and saw the museum closed (well it was 9pm) but the owner inside. He opened up specially for us. It's not huge, but it offers some interesting militaria to buy.
