It would be a travesty to go to Caen and not visit this museum. It is beautifully done. You do not need to know French or have a knowledge of World War II to enjoy this museum to its fullest extent.

Good museum with good explanation of the war and the running up to WWII. The cold war section was allright but less impressive. Also the Beach tours I can recommend.

The 2 hours we spent here was grossly inadequate. Unfortunately we were in a pre booked tour and thats all the time we got. One must visit the place to understand the price of freedom we enjoy today.

We spent 6 hours at this wonderfully presented museum. I can't add anything to the glowing reviews. A most sobering and humbling experience especially to view a section of the Berlin Wall and some steel from the structure of the Twin Towers. The memorial gardens...More

This museum covers events leading up to WWII from the first WW, the war including the d day landing and post war. It is multimedia and well done. You must leave 3 to 4 hours for this venue and could spend most of the day.

Sorry not sure about port. I took train from Paris, stops in Caen where the World War museum is. Then you travel on train to Bayeux where you take tour to visit Memorial and Beaches.
