This is a smaller war museum, but definitely worth seeing, while in Bayeux. It was a good starting point for us before we visited the Normandy D-Day beaches.
The Museum contains an array of pictures and exhibits that give visitors a sense of the scale of the Normandy invasion. It honours those who served their respective nations.
I had already visited Normandy but I didn't even know about this museum. Luckily I found it and decided to visit. It has a lot of good displays. I didn't know as I entered, but it focuses on the military and human story of the Battle of Normandy. It offers an insight into purely historical facts, alternating with themed features,... More
Museums aren't usually my thing, but my husband wanted to visit and so I obliged. But it was actually far more interesting than I expected it to be. My husband had given me a potted history of the Second World War and the German invasion of Europe and I was therefore able to understand the lead up to the Normandy... More
While there is not a lot of interactive or hands on in this museum, it has well presented exhibits in english and french and provides a well rounded discussion of events leading up to the landing on D-Day and the followup actions that took the allies to Paris and eventually Berlin. Very useful as a precursor to the beaches.

It was well presented and easy to get around the total museum. Allocate at least 2 hours however if your "need to... More
There was more here than we expected, enough so that we ended up staying for hours. The combination of overview with some in depth displays made for a rather unique and educational experience. Don't miss.
Visited the museum for a few hours. Great representation of equipment and weapons used by both sides. Movie available for viewing of D-Day. Both teenage boys 14 and 18 enjoyed the museum.
The French certainly view DeGalle in a different light than my father did (a Vet of the Normandy Invasion). But, the museum has great examples of the uniforms all soldiers wore as well as their equipment
This has to be one of the best museums I have ever visited. Very well laid out and easy to follow, the museum gives visitors beautifully presented snapshots of how the battle was planned and carried out. The interpretation was excellent, I found the information on the various leaders, British, American, French and German fascinating. A great deal of information... More
