This is a very nice and well done outdoor exhibit that uses original bunkers which makes it more historical. It is a figure 8 kind of loop with bunkers and sites to see along the way. They give you a map but you don't really...More

Delighted this has such a good rating as it really is excellent and an absolute must-see. The aircraft was the highlight for us; to be able to go inside and walk around was amazing. The videos, light-show re-enactment and various displays are very moving and...More

We spent 2,5 hours here. Very well presented. An important part of what was happening on the Normandy coast on 6 June 1944 just a few kilometers from Pegasus Bridge. Good insight in to chaos and bravery. We went from there to Ranville War Cemetery.

There is a lot to see and read at this battery and there is a fine example of an aircraft. The sound and light show is a bit basic and a bit odd, but worth popping into if you are there. The site is very...More
