This place had some amazing pieces of history. It is very unfortunate they had to close their doors. I understand the revenue was not enough to support the museum from the day it opened in 2013.

When you have an empty local and a good bunch of war tanks, you may put them all together, open a museum and keep it in the same way for many many years. No paying attention to new ways of exhibit the artefacts or to technology or to update the whole museum to the 21st century standards. And also it... More

Popped in for a look around. It's quite pricy to get in €18 for my son and I and to be honest there is nothing new here. There is a good collection of US vehicles and I was surprised to see a Pacific. I think the price for entry is high and was not surprised to hear that they are... More

This museum has many like working condition allied tanks and a non-restored German tank. Very informative! Rides in the mini tank I'm sure would have delighted my children but the price was too high. The shop next door had many sweets and also local ciders (recommend you try them) but no food of substance and I didn't see a place... More

The Normandy tank museum is a brilliant museum, lots of information, and vehicles are in great condition and I really recommend it . BUT the tanks are limited to American and a few German vehicles and it's a little small. And it is very sad to see that this collection of wonderful antique vehicles is soon to be sold on... More

This museum is a total waste of money. If you go to see tanks you will be disappointed. Lots of other museums in the area with much better collections. Calling it a tank museum is false advertising.

The entire collection is to be sold this September (2016). I loved this museum and it hurts to see the collection split up. :(

This was our second stop during our D-Day experience and to be honest expected a bit more for the price paid. We would have loved a trip in a tank but this wasn't possible apparently, no reason given. The place has lots of vehicles, lots of Information but not a lot of Interactive plays. I expected a bit more for... More

Informative, interesting place. Our 9 year old felt all his dreams came true with a visit to this museum. So many Ww2 vehicles in one place heaven, for a young boy with an interest in history.
