We were recommended to make a visit to this Nazi Battery museum by our local hotelier and we were not disappointed. The ladies on duty within the entrance kiosk / shop spoke English and provided the museum map of the site, which is printed in...More
The museum is logicallyl set out and explains the events of D Day at the Battery very well. Further development is being undertaken and will probably make the visit even better.
We took 2 hours looking around and listening to the presentations which was longer...More
A great little place, full of bunker areas to look through.
Best part of the visit for me was the part where you could go in and experience the sights and sounds of what one if those air raid attacks would have been like.
This is a very nice and well done outdoor exhibit that uses original bunkers which makes it more historical. It is a figure 8 kind of loop with bunkers and sites to see along the way. They give you a map but you don't really...More
So pleased we walked there in the heat! Was well worth it. They were about to start works but I hope they don't lose the wall of photos and quotes along the outside. So very humbling and moving. Staff v willing and friendly, plane is...More

-yet only one gives you a true impression of what it looked like on the inside. Most of them are transformed into small museums/expositions. But the weather was nice and it was interesting to walk around and read about the place. The plane was also...More

My review "The events which led up to The Invasion of France are many and the acts of bravery are numerous. However, this was one which I knew little of. You really must visit this battery and should be rightfully thankful of the audacious attack on the Merville Guns"
