Has relevant historical artifacts in their original setting. Particularly worth visiting if you have an interest in technology. Unlikely ever to be crowded.

Having a family member who survived the landings at Sword beach, it was humbling to visit some of the battlements where my grandfather has fought. When my husband asked to add this museum to the list of places to visit, I grumbled. But I'm so...More

The museum at the former Wehrmacht radar station at Douvres claims to offer a history of Radar, but in fact this is a very minimal exhibition with limited scope. It does little to put into context this highly important and well defended observation post which...More

Went in DDay week in June. Enjoyed visit very much - Staff were very helpful and informative. Bought several excellent books on the subject (very expensive) that I have not seen on any other site. Sadly the Wurzburg was there but fallen off its plinth....More

Travelled 40 miles to see the the Wurzburg radar there. Closed and the thing has been dismantled. Nothing in the leaflets I picked up in Normandy said anything about being closed and I wasn't the only one to have travelled to see it. Shame

Looks from the outside a great museum and definitely a one-of-its-kind with all the hardware. When we last came the big radar had fallen off its base which is a pity. Hopefully they will repair it. Unfortunately it seems this museum is open very limited...More

Very informative and well run museum. A bit "off the beaten track", but well worth a visit. I doubt that there are many other WURZBURG antennae in Europe!

Very impressed with the quality of the displays in the two underground bunkers. Excellent short film to set the context (alternating French/German/English). Lots to see and learn about radar. Excellent technical information, again Fr/Ger/En. Some superb models of the base and various radar systems land,...More

Not really that much on-site, but what is there is well presented. There is a very well preserved bunker that you can visit. Its cheap enough to enter and is well worth a visit. I'm glad I took the time to visit the site. Ample...More

Part of Normandy Landing Museum chain and well worth a visit. The radar site at Douvres-la-Délivrande is now home to a museum, with two of the bunkers housing displays about the evolution and role of radar. The museum also maintains a rare preserved example of...More
