A quite fascinating museum recounting one of the most daring raids of WW2. If you've watched the film 'the longest day' you will know what I mean. Well worth dropping in to have a look.

This museum has an excellent exhibit. Very interesting displays of memorabilia, vehicles, photographs and of course the bridge. The film is very moving and worth watching. Could spend a very long time reading everything.

A place dedicated to bravery of all concerned. Too many things to say in a few words, visit it yourself and prepare to be amazed.

We feel that this is well worth the money. A lovely museum that evoked tears at some parts. A real tribute to the hero's who fought for our liberty. This should be a must for everyone to visit at least once in their lifetime.

It depends on how interested you are in WW2 but The Bridge and museum are a must as is the Cafe.We had a nice ham roll and coffee there. Also the War cemetery at Ranville. Hope this helps?
