Took the Free Guided tour of the Museum and grounds. The tour guide was excellent, she told the story of taking the Bridge and the subsequent visits of the veterans who fought in the campaign to take it. A great day out .

Only knew the basics of what happened in the Normandy landings but going to the Pegasus bridge was fascinating and eye opening. Well worth going to, expect to spend about an hour or so there

On a trip to the d day beaches we visited this twice, once accidentally as we took a wrong turn. However it is an amazing site and a visit to the airborne museum is a must. Also go for a walk and look where the gliders landed, the memorials and the village. Recommend this to every one to get an... More

This piece of history is well worth a visit but the food and beer is very very expensive. Infact I reccommend you dine in Les Trois Planneurs opposite. Don't believe all you hear from Madame Gondree-Pritchett...she says she was eleven on D DAY and remembers everything.She was infact 2 years of age.You might be inclined to ask her why she... More

This was our first visit to a series of Normandy memorials of WWII and perhaps appropriate in that this was one of the first successful operations of the allied invasion of Normandy launched on the night of 5 June 1945 by elements of the 6th British Airborne Division. Like a lot of the Normandy war museums there is a collection... More

Few little boys grow up without knowing a lot about Operation Overlord but some of the less well known bits should be looked at as well to fully understand their significance. Imagine my surprise 2 years ago when my old boss David Tibbs MC FRCS popped up on a documentary and I discovered 35 years after I was his houseman... More

16 of us stopped off on our way back to the ferry port. We found the Pegasus Bridge very interesting. The bridge opened whilst we were there to let a boat through. We had lunch at the cafe (freedom ) where the staff were quick to serve you and the food was delicious ..

If you are at the museum, take the very short walk out of the parking lot and go right. There is the bridge that replaced the original bridge which is in the museum. It gives you some perspective as to what the allies were viewing in their attack.
