The Maisy Battery is a huge German WW2 Headquarters and Gun Batteries that was left buried in the fields of Normandy for the past 60 years. Only re-opened in 2006 this site now stands as the largest in Normandy of its type with over 3km of trenches open for you to see along side personnel buildings, ammunition tunnels, Hospitals and many more buildings that you can walk through and explore! Private tours are available on request taken by the owners. This is really a unique site to see on this coast!

A friend and I dropped in here on an off chance. We left feeling stunned. An amazing museum, with the 'personal touch'. Staff on site where helpful, knowledgeable and genuinely interested in their subject. One of, if not the best, of all the museums in...More

Have a nice walk through the labyrinth and discover different bunkers and old installations of the German forces. It is somehow quite authentic to walk through the dark bunkers. Especially the kids loved it. However 20 € fee (family with two kids) is by far...More
