Well worth the visit. Take your time and allocate a couple of hours as there are videos to see at specified times of what the war actually felt like. A lot to take in.....

We arrive late, but it's accesible, but concrete bunkers are closed. There is a plane and some artillery items, but not originals from 1944. The history is very well explained.
