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.

The museum was a good general overview of the Battle of Normandy. We spent more time there than I thought we would. The movie was really interesting too.

This is a rather small museum, which gives a decent overview of the battle and has some good weapons/ vehicles on display. Well worth a visit.

A very interesting museum with masses of information on the Battle of Normandy with lots of maps and diagrams as well as exhibits of uniforms and weapons. There is a film shown alternatively in English and French which provides more information on the campaign. The memorial - which is right next to the museum - is also worth a visit.

One of the many museums in this area of Normandy dedicated to WWII and particularly D Day and well worth a visit.

This Museum gives a great overview of events that took place in the Bayeux area. Lots of interesting displays (no photos allowed) and history is on display. It was just enough detail without going overboard. When we departed the museum, we headed for Omaha Beach.
