Follow in the steps of American troops as you tour Omaha Beach, St.-Mere-Eglise, the Utah Beach Museum, the Normandy American Cemetery, and more. Group size is limited to eight people for a personalized experience that bigger tours don’t offer; an early departure time ensures you cover key sites in a single day of sightseeing.

To me this looked like a collection of "stuff" left behind from the Normandy invasion which was gathered up and put into a building. While you cannot deny the importance of D day, this collection was just not impressive.

This is not really a museum about the Big Red One's Normandy campaign but rather a labour of love for the enthusiastic Frenchman who put together this collection of often rusty memorabilia from Omaha Beach. It's all a bit haphazard and is really only suitable for hard core D Day enthusiasts.

This small museum is a treasure, partially because of its contents and mostly because of its owner/host, Pierre. We visited the museum to see the display of the helmet of the deceased relative of a friend, and the detail Pierre had of the helmet (which he himself found) and its owner was incredible!! But an even greater surprise was when my wife mentioned her uncle who had served in the USN on a troop ship - one most have never heard of - and Pierre knew all about the ship and shared many details and photos about it!! He has an incredible amount of information about WWII, which he willingly shares. His museum includes an intimate collection of fascinating war memorabilia much of it collected by Pierre himself. Do not miss this museum - you will learn a lot

The vibe of this museum was, well, offputting for me. I am an avid WWII history buff and have read quite extensively about the exploits of this division. For me, the museum failed to capture the achievements of those soldiers. The woman who took our money for the tickets could not have been less enthusiastic about our presence, despite there being only a scant few visitors.

This was the only disappointing museum of the entire day. There was little on exhibition, and the information was also thin on the ground. At 5 euros entry charge I wouldn't recommend this place, sadly.
