I thought this was a great experience and the staff could not be more helpful. It is a must see for any one wanting to see iconic history and gain a deeper insight for what was really achieved.

What an amazing place. So much history from WW2 here. The museum is really good, and you can see the landing places of the Horsa Gliders over the road in the fields. You HAVE to visit.

This is where the action happened

The bonus after you have visited the museum is that you get to cross on the new Pegasus Bridge. The bridge in itself is perhaps nothing to see, but when you have learned more about the story you do realise what an impact securing this bridge had on the success of the D-Day.
It is absolutely worth to stop and walk across the bridge and to see the big stones that marks where the gliders landed, that is really amazing.

The replacement bridge, wow what an area of history, had to go and watch the longest day film again. Lucky to be there when the bridge opened too.Very well laid out memorial to the brave few.

This was somewhere I had wanted to visit as the Oxs & Bucks Light Infantry secured it on D-Day and I served in a descendent Regiment, The Royal Green Jackets. Its a busy road over the Bridge but I was lucky enough to be there when it was raised. I also had a coffee in Cafe Gondree and the owner, Madam eGondree couldn't have been more welcoming and she recognised my cap badge on my t-shirt immediately.She offered me a free coffee as she does with all veterans of the Regiment but i chose to pay for it. Definitely worth the trip and I will go again when I have a little more time

History and Bridges of importance.

This was a huge moment in history. The Pegasus museum gives you a lot of in site. Plus there is lots of signage in English. Many monuments surrounding the Bridge on the river banks. Walk in the grounds to not miss all the monuments. There are many restaurant by the river. Plus a great bicycle path to other towns with history to explore.

A must for anyone interested in WWII

One of the German strong points taken by the Allies before the D Day landings. There is also a fantastic museum close to the site.

superlative during D-day commemorations
Jun 2019
for Canadian it is a very special location and the heroism of the troops landing by glider well explained in the park and nearby museum, but the place and bar take a life of their own during the d-day commemoration. not to be missed

An absolute must if visiting Normandy.

A historic location with a museum to showcase heroes and acts of bravery that changed the course of WWII. The outdoor artefacts including the original Pegasus bridge, Bailey bridge and vehicles are worthy of a look as well as the video which highlights how 9 Div achieved what was deemed by a Russian visitor after the war as unachievable.
A review cannot do this location and museum justice and I urge you all to visit to take in the personal experience.

Good museum and location.
Nov 2019 • Friends
This museum is a most if you are visiting the D-Day beaches. As this is where the invasion started at 00:15hrs with the landing of 3 gliders, next to the bridge. The staff are very friendly and make sure you see the film and explanation of what happened on the 6th June 1944. Look for the damage on the original bridge from the battle to capture it.
