YO, YOU GUYS. DONT GO ANYWHERE ELSE. This place was everything and more. Be sure to do one of the tours because everyone that works in this place are either the best actors known to man or they just really do love their job that much. 10/10 would've taken Rosie on a hot date if I wasn't a straight female...

This was a very interesting Museum with some great exhibits. It gives you a great understanding of the sacrifices and bravery of the allied forces on D-Day. Take your time and experience this important piece of history. Then go out and see the beaches were these brave men fought and died to regain world freedom.

The museum is extremely informative and well-organized. It imparted a valuable introduction to the Normandy invasion, including a cinema that is not to be missed.

It is a VERY solemn place to visit, to think what happen, to thank the men and women from both sides of what was happening

Some interesting artefacts, limited interactivity for children, but good value for money with the combined two museums ticket. Worth doing if you're visiting the castle anyway.

This is a good place to begin a WWII visit. It gives a very good overview of Normandy with films, displays and didactic explanations.

This is a fabulous museum, and even an entire day is not enough time. The audio guide is excellent and the displays are amazing, especially all the old equipment and uniforms. The cafe food was very good, and a pleasant surprise.
