A wonderfully detailed museum with tons of artifacts describing the taking and holding of the critical bridges over the Caen canal. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in D-Day and all that it entailed.

This is a well laid out and informative museum.

It added further incites to the real live events and the films.

The experience was very thought provoking and brought home the events the soldiers went through to capture and hold the bridge.

Would I come again? Yes, and defiantly recommend to others to come.

The museum accepts the Normandy pass scheme.

On the night of 5th June 1944 This important Bridge was captured and held by men of the 9th Parachute Battallion. It is relived in the film 'The Longest Day' which bye and large is extreme accurate. The original bridge now rests i n the adjacent Pegasus Memorial Museum only 100 metres away. Cafe Gondree is a must to visit, Madame Gondrees daughter Arlette was four in June 1944 and she lovingly runs the living museum that is Cafe Gondree.

I visited Pegasus Bridge this year 2013 in August and paid a visit to the Pegasus café. I introduced myself to Madame Gondree who was most hospitable and showed me many mementoes of the bridge. We also had lunch with her in the restaurant.
She was most welcoming and it was an ambition fulfilled for me to visit and meet with her. I must add that it is madam Gondree the daughter as her mother passed away many years ago.
A chance not to be missed if you get one, best wishes Seymour Myers
