Telling the story of Normandy from pre-historic times through to the modern day, there are some magnificent displays in here, and enhances a visit to the Chateau wonderfully

Not very stimulating unless you are in to early Normandy archaeology. Some good exhibits but as it is not very expensive is just about worth it.

A very interesting museum, particularly as it depicts some of the ancient/classical life in what is now Normandy! There seems to be a bit of a jump of a millennium as you go upstairs, but the social history is just as important. Worth a visit...More

We had a wonderful tour of the museum while visiting Omaha Beach on our D-Day tour. It was a beautiful tribute and record of the sacrifice of so men on that fateful day. So many wonderful displays!

This museum goes hand in hand with the visit to the cemeteries along the Normandy Beaches. Make a day of this and don't miss out on the experience while you're here.

Excellent museum , full of artifacts and some explanations were in english too. Very well laid out and quite large. You also get an extra exhibition to visit in another building, which changes throughout the year. All this for 5.50 euros.
