I suggest you put this museum on your list if you have time while visiting Bayeux. My wife and I found it interesting and a nice way to spend a few hours. The video of the battle is a must see if you go!

It encompasses several buildings - land force, air power, and naval. A lot of really interesting war artifacts layed out in very realistic settings. A must for anyone interested in D-Day

We enjoyed this museum up to a point but it is the old type of museum where you read the caption under the picture and then move on, not sure if you are going in the right direction. After a while it all gets overwhelming...More

This museum in Bayeux is one of many covering the D-day landing and related aspects of the WW2 landing and following events. This one has more equipment, tanks artillery etc. maybe better for the kids and the military enthusiasts. We (an Australian couple) found the...More
