Very good visitor center. The entire property is well maintained and gives a sense of dignity to the fallen soldiers.

We visited on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The Cemetery is extremely moving. There are thousands of young men buried here that paid the ultimate price for our freedom. They are from every State of the Union. Most died in June, July and August of 1944....More

The Visitor Centre is a magnificent addition to a wonderful attraction, if a cemetery can be described as an attraction. Full of great information about the individuals buried here and the overall Overlord operation

I visited the cemetery on D-day tour and it was by far my favorite stop. It had the most emotional effects on the tour seeing how many missing in action there was. It is a must see for anyone who has interest in WW2 history...More

This wasn't the first time I visited the Colleville-sur-Mer cemetery, I always pay my respect when I'm in Normandy to the young soldiers who paid with their lives for our freedom. The visitor centre is new, as are the bored guards who seem to be...More
