Very enjoyable, informative trip

The museum really gives the feel of the events with a range of exhibits on offer. Even the 2-year old was captivated.

The museum is well done with individual invasion stories presented and a very worthwhile short video. There a long video that most tourists avoided the day we spent there. If you have the time it is very well done. We found it was important to have a guide who could give the 'story behind the stories', sometimes in horrific detail.

The museum houses a wonderful collection of artifacts from WWII and especially the Normandy campaign. The short film is especially interesting, as it provides an excellent overview of the events leading up to D-Day. Everything is well presented and described, and I think would be intriguing even for kids who aren't usually fans of museums :-)

Unfortunately we snuck a visit to this museum just before we had to catch the train back to Paris. We didn't leave ourselves enough time to fully enjoy it but what we did see was excellent! Of the many museums in the Normandy coast area, this appeared to be one of the better ones. Would definitely recommend! Don't forget to... More

Thus museum sirs across the street from the British Cemetery in Bayeux. The museum is great and gives lots of insight in to the planning that occurred after the invasion.

It really helps a person to understand what the soldiers had to go through when you visit a museum like this. A very moving experience and so pleased we visited.

You can get a really good synopsis of D-day invasions at this museum. The lists of all the high ranking military for the Allies and Germany was really informative.

Also see the Airborne Museum, which actually is better! It's a bit of a drive away from here but worth the trip

Very informative and well laid out. Many pictures and artifacts on display. You could spend several hours easily here. Price is reasonable for what you get. May not be as big as other such museums but is equal or better as regards information and displays.
