Owner description: Situated near the British Military Cemetery of Bayeux, the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy narrates the battles which took place in Normandy after the D-Day landings, between 7th June and 29th August 1944. The collections of military equipment, the diorama and the archival films allow the visitor to grasp the enormous effort made during this decisive battle in order to restore peace in Europe.

This museum covers the D-Day Landings and the struggle to free Normandy and Brittany. Plenty of reading on the exhibits with a 16 minute film in both French and English. Admission fee. Probably the most comprehensive account of WW2 June 6th 1944 and beyond. Wheelchair access. Free parking. Lovely location close to Cemetery

We really enjoyed this Museum and film. Very informative. Note that certainly in April it is closed for two hours at lunchtime.

There are many WWII museums in the area and the Bayeux and Caan museums are larger and a little more detailed. Great for a WWII buff, or someone looking to learn a little more. Not far from the tapestry, and easy to get to. 20 minutes to Omaha Beach.

We toured with a 10 and 15 year old and they were so impressed with the museum. It's an excellent way to understand D day at a more in depth level....the original uniforms,guns,tanks and other items associated with the time are extensive. Head over to the British Cemetary across the street ....you'll have a better appreciation for the sacrifice these young men made. I know we did.

I loved seeing all that they have recuperated, all that you could learn. It was a very interesting place, so much to see. It really gets you thinking about how things were those days and it makes you want to learn more
