“Excellent location for a coach party on a cold winters day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

There are three marked coach bays in the museum main car park, and there is also an overflow car parking area available. You can feed the ducks next to the bridge and there are enough picnic tables for a whole coach party.

The whole area around the bridge is kept really clean, and the museum is in pristine condition also. The price is reasonable for students at 4.50 euros each. The displays are well presented with clear labeling and there is a short 10 minute film shown in both English and French. There is a well stocked souvenir shop in the museum and one over the bridge opposite the Cafe Gondee.

It is exactly 10 minutes drive from the port at Ouistreham, and only 2 minutes off the main D514 road.

“Moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

I've visited Pegasus Bridge on many occassions. It's a must see. The original bridge is in the museum over the road. You can walk across it, and can see the bullet holes inflicted during WW2, D-Day
There is always something going on. Usually a Parade with Pipes and Drums or Brass Band. You might even be lucky enough to be there when the Parachute Regiment are making one of their many visits. It is so poignant
Alongside the new bridge you will find Cafe Gondree, which is reputed to be the first place liberated during the landings. It's quite tiny inside, but the staff make such a fuss of everybody who visits. Madame Gondree is said to still frequent - or at least I think that's what they said

“Very excellent, especially to learn the full story!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

We are from the US & spent this second trip to Normandy concentrating on the British & Canadian beaches. Because of 'The Longest Day' our son really wanted to visit this site & we were so glad we did. Not only do they still have the original bridge, the pipes from the piper & many other collection items related to that event, there is a guide who uses a digital graphic map to explain to you exactly what went on, then takes you outside to talk about the original bridge & Horsa gliders. Not only does he tell you what actually happened & where, he recounts the stories from veterans that participated & can even tell you the discrepancies with the film…of which there are 3. We were so pleased to see how young the guide was, so full of knowledge & an obvious passion for this place, we felt it was a good sign that the memories of so many who gave their lives would long be preserved for future generations.

This was definitely the best part of our trip to Normandy this time!

“What a fantastic piece of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Visited as part of a cadet group last year and if you are in the area you must go and visit! Do not miss out! The museum is also great and if you keep walking you can see where the planes crashed marked by tributes along a path. Great day out. There's a fab coffee shop next to the bridge and the owner's parents owned the coffee shop during the war. Go in for a chat.
