There are several museums in and around Arromanche. The story of that port and how it was built in preparation for D-day is mind-boggling. The UK and US, Churchill and Roosevelt, managed to conceive of the building of this artificial port in extremely short order...More

Fab museum though the stairs may be a bit much for some. Very informative and I'm sure if it wasn't raining you would get a great view from the top. Worth the admission for sure.

The Bunker to the Atlantic Wall Museum is quite remarkable. Used during the occupation as a fortified observation point, it tells the story of the German part in D-Day, and the subsequent battle.

Interesting educational displays of the defensive structures built to protect Hitler from the Allied invasion and the equipment used. Many stairs, somewhat cramped quarters; some low ceilings because this is a real bunker. The vehicles on display outside are worth the price of admission by...More

Fascinating insight into the workings of the Atlantic Wall. The story of its surrender will have given the Royal Engineers something to tell their comrades about over a pint later that day!

It is a bunker and has an interesting history. The displays are good and the history of the construction and fall of the bunker are well set out.

Poignant is a fair description. Taking this battery undoubtedly saved many lives but at a high cost. Sadest thing? A remembrance cross placed in a bullet hole at the entrance to a bunker. LWF - Never !!
