Beautifully kept, inspiring so many American lives given to save Europe and the world. Good bathrooms, beautiful view of cliffs and lovely chapel.

This is a fine museum and is within a healthy walking distance from the center of Bayeux. The film presentation is excellent and a good starting point to gain an understanding of the whole picture of the Normandy invasion of 1944. It's focus however is over-whelmingly American and perhaps that was the reality of the event. As a Canadian who... More

Let's face it, everything we explored during our visit to the Normandy area, particularly related to WW2, was moving, well presented and worth the time/effort.

This is a gem of a museum. It could easily get lost in the shuffle of seeing the bigger museums by the beaches, but don't be fooled. This one seems more personal, with individual artifacts. The main focus is the timeline from D Day to the end of August, 1944, and all that took place in Normandy. I particularly liked... More

Great Museum telling the full story of the landings and what it was like. Loads of exhibits both indoor and outside. One of the best value things we covered whilst in town. Will keep young and old interested for a couple of hours,

This museum had lots to offer, many displays, including tanks,guns and lots to read along with a cinema with a 25 minute film. If you were to read everything it would take all day though, so I just read the parts which I found most interesting. The film was good but I opted to watch in French rather than wait... More
