Not mentioned in the same breath as the high profile Normandy museums like the Utah Beach Museum or the American Cemetery Museum, but if you are in Bayeux, this is worth a stop. A really nice display of military equipment from the Normandy campaign era....More

There's relatively little in this museum that would encourage a special trip to visit it, but it's worth a visit if you're in Bayeux; particularly as the price of a Tapestry/Gerard/Battle ticket is good value. The film that is shown is well balanced and informative.

Allow 2 hours to visit this small museum, a short walk from the center of Bayeux, and a nice complement to a D-Day beach Tour. Lovely staff and great little “movie”

Every film is in English. I cannot say when they are show in English but it seemed to be most of the time.
