A very well organized museum to discover D-day. The movie with real footage from d-day is amazing. The exhibits with lots of details and objects are very well organized. A temporary exhibit on war prisoners is very instructive.

This Museum has some great exhibits. The only drawback was a large number of people in the museum which made getting close to some of the exhibits difficult. But in all fairness, it was near the anniversary of D-Day.

Amazing museum so full of facts and memorabilia. We were there visiting the beaches and thought we would give the museum a go and so glad we did. Quality 2/3 hours spent wandering about and reading about the landings. Well, well worth visiting.

We're hoping to tour the D-Day beaches, is it OK to bring the dog onto the beach at Utah? I know he can't go in the museum. Thanks.
