Situated near the British Military Cemetery of Bayeux, the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy narrates the battles which took place in Normandy after the D-Day landings, between 7th June and 29th August 1944.

Very humbling to see all the men and women who lost their lives for us! We took the Bayeux Shuttle tour and all four of us were amazed by all the information and sites.
