Make sure you visit the original bridge at the museum as well!

Beware the cafes adjacent to the bridge do not serve food in the evenings....

If you've ever seen "the Longest Day" and who over forty hasn't, you'll allways hear the quotation : 'hold untill relieved" The Pegasus bridge memorial is a lovely nice museum. A very enthousiastic French girl told about the tactics and strategic value of taking the bridges to cross te Caen Canal, the river Ornde and de Dives. We've just missed the English film presentation and however our French is quite poor, we were able to understand her story perfectly. (our French was comparable by that as spoken by the Prince of Wales in the movie. In stead of other French museums where they tend to gather all kind of old stuff wether it has to do with te theme of the museum or not, this museum is clear and sticks to the theme.

We have just been on our second trip to the Pegagus Bridge museum. This is a really good museum and I would say that it is one of the best WW2 museums I have been to. I would strongly recommend that you try and attend one of the guided tours. The lady who gave us our tour was really good and knew a huge amount of information. She gave the tour with a great range of knowledge for adults and children. It is also worth going over to the Pegasus cafe for lunch.

What a great experience steeped in history even it was no the original it was still a great feeling to just stand and take in the scene ,we went down to where the 3 gliders landed and we were amazed how close to the bridge they landed. We went over to Madame gondree,s cafe for breakfast and we were quite shocked by her abrasive attitude !!!!!!! But it was a great day as we had watched the film the longest day the day before well worth it a good time had by all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just taken my 11 year old son and 70 year old father to Normandy, and the Pegasus bridge and adjacent museum were one on the highlights.

The original bridge is now in the museum as it has succumbed to the ravages of time, and together with a replica of a glider and a very good interactive cinema and map makes a great display.

There is a lot to see around the area including the bridge cafe which was the first building to be liberated in France, and several memorials to the soldiers who landed by glider just after midnight on the 6th June 1944.

I would highly recommend the museum and the cafe
