Small but interesting. It is in the center of Saint Marie du Mont, the town the men of the 101st liberated on D-Day. The town is a quiet gem - stay and explore this small Norman town and its warm people

After a number of museums where the focus was on the fighting, it was very nice to visit a a museum where they talked about how the average population lived through the war and D-Day. The museum was very well done, expecially the wonderful and realistic "typical town street". The film at the end is in French with English subtitles and should not be missed. It was amazing how people managed during the war with all that was rationed - two things surprised me the most - mothers using parachutes to make children's clothes (as all the cotton and wool were used for the war) and the wooden soles to resole shoes (again, rubber was not available). Gives you appreciation for the things we have today. The gift shop was also one of the best.
