“Skip this and head to Utah Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

The Utah Beach museum is superior...skip the Gold Beach. Gold Beach is crowded and a mini version of Utah Beach.

“Enjoyed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My family and I enjoyed this museum. It was great opportunity to make history tangible and learn more about The British role in D-Day. Glad we took the time to check this museum out. The lady at the tourism desk was super friendly and informative about both of the museums that were available at this location. We had a mix of ages not just teens.

“Gold Beach Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great museum with lots of information and artefacts on the D-Day landing, its also got details of the first mail flight from the USA which crated at Ver-Sur-Mer, well worth a visit.

“Back to the Future”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The American cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach, with its row upon row of crosses and lots of Magen Davids, more than I imagined, is a fitting resting place for the brave souls who gave their all for their country and the freedom of the world.
Acres of grass as smooth as a putting green, with beautiful flower beds, here and there, among the polished, white, marble crosses, a handful of appropriately discrete and tasteful monuments, and a small, white, circular chapel in the center. The gardeners were there when we were, cutting the already cut grass. I had the impression they were always there, dutifully tending to the graves. Hundreds of people walking among the crosses, some looking for names, and barely a sound. Then a low stone wall overlooking the now peaceful beach across a half a kilometer of natural trees and bushes with trails winding down to the beach. It's done right, a perfect setting for the brave men who died there, heroes all.

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Another excellent museum. Many video clips with real people telling real stories, even Eisenhower, make everything here so credible. If anything, there is just too much to see and it is difficult to find a way that seems a logical route to go through without missing anything.
