We found this museum to be one of the best D-Day history museums of the many in the Normandy area that cover the D-Day times. Do not miss this one on a trip to the Omaha Beaches area.

After seeing the beach itself, it is worthwhile to visit this small museum, to get a bit more of the atmosphere of those momentous days. The movie clips are excellent, and so are the displays of weapons, uniforms, etcc.

Very disappointing. Seemed a random set of artefacts with little thought to the thought or story being portrayed. by far the poorest of numerous museums visited over 3 days

So disappointing on every level. A yard sale of a museum with department store mannequins draped in Nazi and Allied costumes, along with weapons and material. Missed opportunities to represent the full horror and, ultimately, dignity of this conflict.

this is not a particuarly big museum, but you could easily spend a few hours in here, taking in all the details and information. There is certainly a lot to read, and lots to see. When looking at the displays, you need to take your...More

The museum is located a short distance from Omaha beach on the main road. There are a few exhibits in the parking lot; a tank, a field gun and a howitzer. Adult admission is €6,90/person, but a military discount takes a little off that. Once...More

If you only have time to visit one museum (and you should leave yourself at least two hours to see this one) while touring Omaha Beach this is definitely the one. (If you take a week, as I did, to visit Normandy, you will see...More

If you are on the way please stop by the museum. Is really incredible place. Emotion and feelings are surrounding all the park and the inside spots. Detailed and great visits, well taken care. Seems to be in the USA and perfectly felt the history.

This museum is small and not one of the grand official sites. It has none of the triumphalism and glory of some of the more official sites. Instead, it is deeply real, and deeply affecting. It is the creation of a man who was five...More

A well thought out museum with interesting displays detailing the events of June 1944. There are better museums amongst the dozens that are in the area but this is worth a visit.
