This little museum is superb. The story of the capture of the Pegasus bridge is right from a 'boys' own magazine' so it should be easy to capture the imagination. This museum does just that. What it does so well is to provide a great...More

Not the biggest museum on the planet, but one of the most interesting. Even my wife, who doesn't usually like "this type of thing" was happy spending some time there. As previous reviewers have stated, the film they show at regular times is extremely informative...More

Not a huge museum but plenty to see. The original bridge obviously but the remade glider really gave you more of an idea of the size of what the guys were landing. The auditorium film was particularly touching. I found it helped as we had...More

We had a very informative guide who brought the history of the area to life. The exhibits were excellent, particularly the huge glider that is on display and the story behind it all was amazing. Worth every penny.

This is a wonderful museum, a bit away from the rest of the D-Day sites (35 minutes from Bayeux, 15 K from Caen), but worth the trip. This is the bridge that the British took in the early hours of June 6, 1944. The museum...More
