There is a brilliant display in the Memorial, especially the film depicting the heroism of the Allied Forces. You can spend a lot of time inside, however, there are two 'piece de resistance'. The actual Pegasus Bridge and the glider used to drop the men...More

Having taken a tour round the “attractions “ and cemetery locations,this came as a pleasant surprise.Although the general circumstance evoke emotions and respect for the area,the exhibits available to view enlarge the viewpoints for the entire collection

A must visit to Pegasus Bridge to understand the heroic actions of the soldiers of D-day. The Memorial has been wonderfully looked after, the bridge is still in use today and there is lots of information available.

We've been to this excellent museum before but it is always worth revisiting. There are many exhibits relating to D-Day and the events surrounding it, but the most heart wrenching are the two letters from two brothers to their mother. Neither of them returned home.

At least a couple of hours.......There are exhibits outside, a short film to watch and other exhibits inside. Also worth visiting nearby Cafe Gondree.
