A very unique museum to visit , it sheds the light on the German and US paratroopers during the battle of Normandy. The simulation experience is outstanding.

I have visited the National WW 2 museum in New Orleans and they have two outstanding experiences-- the Tom Hank's movie with excellent special effects and the USS Tang experience. I must say, however, that the Dead Man's corner museum at Saint Come du Mont...More

Typical propaganda against the Germans, promotes discrimination and the murder of German people, my German son listened to a hologram describing how to use a knife on a German.

One of the smaller museums, but a fascinating story in the house. The C47 simulator was good. Lots of genuine memorabilia and an equally fascinating shop

Great place to visit, we went in the C47 simulator which worth every penny. Great displays and stories to go with everything, this place has been put together with a lot of thought and is a "must" for anyone going to Normandy.

I'm would suggest 2-3 hours unless it is during the June 6th events. I was there during the events and was it an hour wait to get in the C-47 simulator. I don't think it will take very long during other dates.
