I must say that the area of Normandy must has the most museum/ historical areas per square mile. Every village has a museum and every regiment seems to have one too. But this one gives a very broad stroke of the war in without focus sing on something specific, with interesting stands and displays it's rather good.nIt's not a massive... More

This place was nice, but with all of the other amazing things in the area we were a bit disappointed in this. We wouldn't recommend spending your time here unless you're just looking for something to fill the time.

I walked to the museum from my B&B in central Bayeux, and it was definitely worth it. Very well done. The night I was there it was free admission, and I was impressed with all of the local French youngsters who were learning about the momentous event that shaped the 20th Century.

From the moment you step inside the experience is very emotional . The white crosses against the green a stark reminder of our past . The cemetery is well tended . Take time to read the inscriptions as it takes you into the world of the soldier and the family . Visit the church alongside as well.

Another interesting museum recounting the wider battle for Normandy and not just the D-Day landings. Interesting film and artefacts supported by well-assembled narrative. Opposite the British War Cemetery.

I'd wanted to visit here after being in the area several times but always misses the opportunity. Took my wife, her parents and extended family and we were all impressed. The tapestry is staggering when you think it is almost 1000 years old. So long too. The audio in English explains each pictorial stage of Williams journey to becoming the... More

Along the D-Day beaches each village and each regiment seems to have its own museum. This is fascinating if one has deep knowledge of the Normandy landings and no limit to the time one can spend in the area. If not, this fine museum gives an excellent month-by-month overview of the entire Allied campaign in the area, and doesn't shy... More

I visited several museums in the area, and this was by far the best. It has lots of information pitched at different levels (children and adults) as well as a bit of the German perspective. Plenty of exhibits as well as written information, and everything is buggy/wheelchair accessible.

One of the best museums along the coast of Normandy. Excellent exhibits on the Mulberry floating bridges, the landing beaches, photographs, equipment used, etc. Located in the heart of town with many souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, etc nearby.
