There are many museums in Normandy covering the Invasion and this is one of the better ones. Entry is €7,90 per adult. Good collection of vehicles from German and Allies forces. Some have been restored to working condition. No lockers, but the bathrooms are nice....More

What a great little place. Packed full of vehicles, artefacts and dioramas on DDay. There are stacks of museums interpreting these events in the area but this one was exceptional. Great value too!

This is a well put together museum of the history of WWII, Take your time and read about the history. The displays are well worth taking your time and try to think about what all the soldiers went through back then.
