We've visited most of the museums relating to D-Day in the Normandy area and thought perhaps this would not be as good as some of the larger ones as it looks small from the outside, but it just shows you shouldn't judge a book by its cover! A huge expanse of windows down one side of the building overlook the... More

Lots of information to be got here. The displays are good, and the write-ups for some of the exhibits certainly bring home the utter futility of war, as well as the bravery of some of the participants. Well worth a visit.

This small museum has so many interesting artifacts from WWII and stories to go along with them. You will not be sorry if you stop here.

Great experience viewing original relics, details of Dday and the Mulberry artificial harbor that is the highlight of Arromaches.

My wife and I were visiting the Arromanches area and whilst in the town saw a sign for this museum/b and b. I admit, I was a bit apprehensive as it seems there are lot of small museums in the area which appear to be more interested in money from tourists rather than telling the story of the landings. My...

A little bit of everything and not for a lot of money. The curator runs the museum. He knows the story of each object. A few things are for sale as well.

An interesting museum from many points of view and for many age groups. Technical, engineering, historical, human, visual display with a very competent guide made this experience well worth while. Apart from the large display, many other aspects of this part of the war are well set out with a relevant shop at the end.

This museum does a fantastic job of explaining the sheer size of the operation that went into the planning and construction of the Mulberry harbour, and is an essential place to visit, in order to understand the magnitude of it. The way the museum explains and demonstrates the Mulberry harbours construction, transportation and use, is excellent, and every member of... More

This nice little war museum does the best job in explaining the Mulberry harbor & construction aspects. Plus there are displays of period dressed authentically attired Allied troops. Nice informative movie as well. Must see for children & history buffs...

To see the model of the floating docks and hear how they were constructed is a truly wonderful experience. I knew a bit about the landings but had no idea of the fantastic feat of engineering involved, quite fantastic what was achieved in such a short space of time. This exhibition really brought it to life. The debt we owe... More
