“Great Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is definitely one of the best WW2/D-Day museums. Arromanches is full of great attractions! Definitely worth a visit, although it isn't massive, it is packed full of exhibits and information.

“One of the better museums”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is probably one of the better museums in Normandy, and really brings to life the sheer size and scale of the temporary Mulberry harbour that was built off the coast in front of the museum.

Buy a Normandy pass for a discount of the entry fees.

“Wish the weather had been warmer to walk on beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Great position overlooking the beach and the Mulberry B remnants. Possibly the best of the museums visited so far. Well worth the entrance price.

“Small museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

This is a small museum down on the sea front in Arromanches. The models on display explain the construction of Mulberry harbour very well. It allows the visitor to take onboard the huge logistical task that the British faced in creating an artificial harbour after D-Day and how they managed to bring in so many ships with supplies & vehicles to get to the battle front. However in some areas the museum felt a little "tired" and could do with modernising. The english "telephone to the ear "audio translation of the french construction film display is informative but requires upgrading for younger members of the family. It is still worth including in any tour.
