We spent 3 hours there, including a 20 minute film ( alternately in French and English) as there is so much to see and absorb. Also worth walking over the the nearby military cemetary

A real C-47 paratrooper plane, real Sherman tanks, and more await you. Tells the story well and concisely regarding the D-Day landings and more.
