We had a lovely time there. The 2 museum's were excellent showing both sides of the story equally. The only change that could be made is a small tea room. There is a snack bar outside but if it raining the only place you can...More

The time you spend here is not long but it was fun. The museum is all about the paratroopers with uniforms to see. The flight simulator was awesome!! I had so much fun in it!

One of the smaller museums, but a fascinating story in the house. The C47 simulator was good. Lots of genuine memorabilia and an equally fascinating shop

Great place to visit, we went in the C47 simulator which worth every penny. Great displays and stories to go with everything, this place has been put together with a lot of thought and is a "must" for anyone going to Normandy.

If you can have one favourite WWII museum, this one is mine. It is smaller than most others so you have time to see everything. Further a lot of things on exhibit are personal things that I guess were donated by the actual owners, for...More

This has to be the most interactive exhibition and museum of the D Day tour. Experience is exactly the right word to describe this site. Save €1 using the 'Baie du Cotentin' pass book. The large car park to the rear of the hanger is...More

We took the grandchildren here yesterday and on the whole they enjoyed it. Good points.....the atmosphere and artefacts in the old house where you could see just why the Germans held on so tenaciously. Also the climax was great especially for the children as the...More

Fantatically well done . Well worth the effort. Compliments to the team. It brings the story of the D-Day landings from a unique perspective. It is done in such a way that it is impactful but not horrifying for children. Our children are 10 and...More

I'm would suggest 2-3 hours unless it is during the June 6th events. I was there during the events and was it an hour wait to get in the C-47 simulator. I don't think it will take very long during other dates.
