Well set out and informative. It was easy to move our way through the exhibits and deepen one's knowledge of the Normandy campaigns. It took about 30 minutes to walk to the museum from the centre of Bayeux.

You can spend quite some hours her, but you need to have a special interest for the d-day to keep motivated. It's too mutch information and lacks interaction and structure.
