AM SO GLAD WE CAME HERE!

This place really opened my eyes to the amazing foresight and planning it took to pull off the Normandy invasion!! No slight to the troops at all. But, they don't make it far... read more

There are a lot of Museums in Normandy. This is just one of them. There is nothing wrong with the museum, but it is small and mainly interesting if you need to learn about the Arromanches Landing-port. They have a small movie also. Parking in the city can be a challenge.

If your kids suffer from ADD, then this place is perfect for you. If on the other hand, you want more colour on the invasion then you risk sharing my disappointment. The tiny museum consists of a handful of rooms and objects. The scale model of the equipment that made the beaching possible is the highlight. The rest is a... More

This place really opened my eyes to the amazing foresight and planning it took to pull off the Normandy invasion!! No slight to the troops at all. But, they don't make it far without ammo, food and supplies. Not sure how I missed thinking through what a massive undertaking it was to engineer and transport a man-made harbor across the... More

This museum is worth to visit. If you are in the neighborhood you have to! The sight on the Atlantic Ocean is great! Think all the soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom. Keep remembering them.

The museum is not too big, making it excellent to visit with children. The stories come to life, the visit is quite emotional

An excellent museum explaining all about the Mulberry harbour & it's use during WW11. There are models showing how it was built etc. Also guides explaining all in several different languages during peak season . Very impressive especially if you are interested in WW11 history.

Went with my family and was utterly disappointed! First of all the museum is tiny yet they kept cramming people in, knowing full well there were too many people in the place!! Secondly the staff were rude, shouting over microphones for people to be quiet! Its a museum, not a library!!! There were small children in so parents, like myself... More

This museum, which consists of two short films, explains how the Mulberry Harbour was constructed and a scale model gives you the idea of how vast it was. What and amazing achievement by all those involved.

We visited this museum on a rainy day in beginning of August. The museum gives a quite some information about the landing at the beach of Arromanches and the construction of the Mulberry Harbour but it is too small and it was very crowded when we were there. There was a guided tour but it was only in French and... More

We arrived at 4 pm and couldn't buy a ticket as it was full. Twenty minutes later we got in. It was a nice museum but hard to enjoy with the large crowd and hot condition. All signs were in French and English. The movie was 25 minutes long. They had headsets for movie watchers in various other European languages.
