“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

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 the invasion. They have an excellent display how this all worked. In addition to films shown all day....many in English , there are a large number of display. Plan on a couple of hours.

“Lovely owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

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.

“Small, but personal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This museum seems to be a private collection of memorabilia that has been donated by surviving veterans. You see pictures of the vets in their fighting days and now as well as reading their stories. The young man on the desk was very friendly and helpful and spoke very good English. Worth a visit.

“Completes the story”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Liberators Museum conveys the human side of the momentous events of June 1944 and beyond. Through a superb collection of uniforms, equipment, and other artefacts, this museum reminds us that ordinary men and women did extraordinary things in the name of freedom. The stories which accompany the uniforms and personal effects are touching and inspiring. The Liberators Museum deserves its place alongside the best of the Normandy sites. A visit to this excellent, friendly museum is recommended to all without hesitation. I plan a return visit myself!

“moving and informative”

this is a very high quality museum - rich with information, but very accessible. Combines lots of facts with sensitive portrayal of the human stories.
