“interresting, but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Interresting almost for radio technicians and WWII interrested people.
There is no need to spend more than one hour at this place, within that time you'll have seen all twice ;)
Ticket can be combined with the one bought to see the most complete WWII museum of Normandy, the Memorial at Caen.

“An insight into the role of technology during war.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Not the most action packed of museums, but interesting all the same. It is at the site of a second world war radar station and contains 'the only Wurzburg Riese radar still standing'. Theres not a massive amount to look at outside, a defensive position similar to the many gun batteries around Normany(go to Azeville for a good insight into this), the restored radar dish, plus a couple of portable radars are all that stand above ground. The command bunker contains a display on the site, the history of radar(including a film in French, English and German), models of different kind of radars used in ww2(allied and axis) and the development of radar after the war.

Part of the 'Normandie pass' You get a free booklet that is very interesting and the staff on site seem to be helpful, it is a bit out of the way and may not be so interesting to those that have no desire to learn about the above info!
