Interesting memorial, however no military discount is available. My farther who is a veteran of the RAF had to pay full price. I think this was unfair as the majority of other museums offer a discount to veterans who served.

A well laid out and extremely interesting museum which recounts and celebrates the daring and bravery of one of the most famous British actions of D-Day. Best not to miss out, this is genuinely fascinating for adults and kids alike.

Crowded but first class museum and guides. Both Gondree and opposite restaurant, crowded and slow but the location compensates. Easily understood events. Suggest going to the museum first and then the site for better understanding.

What a bridge to see and the engineering it must have taken in that time to do this. The museum is also fantastic to visit where there is even a live presentation and lots of history

We didn’t go into the museum,which looked very interesting because we spent so much time around the bridge and landing area. The are monuments at the landing sites of the first three gliders. Don’t know how they got so close in the dark. The original...More

At least a couple of hours.......There are exhibits outside, a short film to watch and other exhibits inside. Also worth visiting nearby Cafe Gondree.
