I highly recommend this museum to anyone visiting Normandy! It has so much fascinating information about the D-Day Landings and its interactive format keeps both adults and children interested.
Very detailed, almost information overload for one day. Gift shop was disappointing though.
The best WWII museum you will find. This is our second time visiting the museum and this time we devoted the full day to really enjoying and taking advantage of what the museum has to offer. Both times I have ben with my oldest son who was 12 and 18 on our respective visits. This museum has been one of the highlights in our trips to Normandy over the years.
It was excellent, well worth visiting.
Very moving, also factual about ist and 2nd world wars. Cafe good too
The statue in the front (sailor kissing girl--the iconic Times Sq. photo) was a perfect start to a well planned guide to how WWII came about and the impact it had on so many millions of humans on the Earth. I was curious why this particular ground was chosen, learning later of the Nazi bunker under the structure that one can tour. Outstanding. Finally, the 50th anniversary U.S. memorial resonated with me after reading the passage in the floor of the entrance: "From the heart of our land flows the blood of our youth, given to you in the name of freedom."
We booked all of our activities through Viator and had a wonderful experience. I needed to change one reservation before we even left the U.S.A. and the staff was very accommodating. We drove from Paris to Caen, which took longer than we expected so missed our reserved date for admission to the museum, but went the following day and the museum staff were very gracious and accepted our vouchers. We definately will use Viator again! Victoria P.
