For D-day history buffs such as myself, finding the Pegasus Bridge and comparing the scenes in the Longest Day with what I saw there was perhaps the highlight of my trip. On top of that, we met a Canadian named Thomas Dykes and had a wonderful time talking about history. After touring the museum and inspecting the bridge itself, we... More

There is a small museum with a film and tours of the bridge behind the museum. They alternate in French and Elnglish. The oriignal bridge has bullet holes that haven't been filled. There is part of a glider plane behind glass. The tour is quite educational.

Visited this site over 8 years ago, the original bridge was just in a nearby field but now it is housed inside a museum (can be viewed without going in though) the entrance area has been totally updated and now comprises of a very interesting and informative museum that you can pass through before visiting the actual bridge. If you... More

\having just been to the war graves and beaches on the D Day anniversary, this was a very moving visit. The bravery of these men to do what they did is brought home and the original bridge is in the grounds. Simply humbling

There are so many museums dedicated to D-Day and the Normandy Landings, and WWII in general, but this one in particular is definitely worth a visit. Anyone who is a fan of the film "The Longest Day" will appreciate it, and there is plenty of history to be absorbed. Moving and informative.

Visited the Cafe Gondree very early in the morning after disembarking our Caen ferry at 07:30am. Cafe opened about 08:15 and had a lovely experience, so much so, we intend taking a much larger group there on our 2016 Normandy Tour. Madame Arlette Gondree and her team were very welcoming, it was just what we were hoping for, a real... More

Really enjoyed our visit here, whilst the bridge has been replaced by a new one the original sits in the grounds of the museum and can be walked on too, all part of a great homage to what happened here 70 years ago...

This was a very well presented museum with a mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits. The horror and courage of war was shown on a large army scale as well as at an individual human scale. The information on the Horsa Gliders was excellent. We nearly missed this place however as we approached from the west and stopped at the... More

Just to be on the spot was a Museum in itself, and to listen guides at the Pegasus Bridge Museum was interesting and Learning. We loved it and gave a very good understanding of what happened back i June 1944.

What a fantastic museum. Well worth the 7 euros entry to see such a well laid out account of the start of an invasion with lots of artefacts. For me this was really brought to life through the personal stories of the individuals who took part. Ordinary folk caught up in something that they could not control and luck for... More
