My husband booked our tour directly thru the museum which proved to be perfect. Our tour included a full history of the Battle of Normandy, stops at D Day beaches and the American Military Cemetery. The tour started at 1pm. It does not include the...More

This museum deals with several aspects of pre-WWII, WWII and even into the cold war. It is easy to call it an educational place as it will contain facts that you may not have heard before. There are movies available as well. If you need...More

Had a fantastic visit here. Apart from the memorial being huge and taking hours to see we were lucky to meet an English veteran who pointed himself out on photo. What are the chances of that. Great day.

Allow four hours to do justice to this very well presented and curated memorial and museum. Each section is thoughtful in its presentation.

This memorial is well done and contains so many displays, videos, and memorabilia that you should allow a full day! The cafeteria has delicious, affordable, "quick" food, but there is also a full-service restaurant.

This museum is one of the best we have ever visited. We spend an entire day there, and we could have stayed much longer. The best thing about this place is that it tells the story of war in an informative and non-sobbing way. It...More
