The bunker was built in 1943/44, on a special design. I fact, as the coast was very low, the Organization Todt had to erect the 17 meters tower to increase the range finder’s range. This was the Fire Control post of the defenses of the river Orne...more

The Bunker to the Atlantic Wall Museum is quite remarkable. Used during the occupation as a fortified observation point, it tells the story of the German part in D-Day, and the subsequent battle.

A German bunker of the "Atlantic Wall" with an engaging story that was just one part of the drama and horror of the Allied invasion of France. The Royal Engineers captured this place during the British/Free French landing on Sword Beach in 1944, and the...More

Fascinating insight into the workings of the Atlantic Wall. The story of its surrender will have given the Royal Engineers something to tell their comrades about over a pint later that day!

It is a bunker and has an interesting history. The displays are good and the history of the construction and fall of the bunker are well set out.

Poignant is a fair description. Taking this battery undoubtedly saved many lives but at a high cost. Sadest thing? A remembrance cross placed in a bullet hole at the entrance to a bunker. LWF - Never !!

Visited here with the kids and whilst it isn’t a place to dwell that long (45mins to an hour) due to its size it is definitely worth a visit for anyone interested either in the Atlantic Wall fortifications or D Day. The museum is an...More

Quite a small museum with interesting exhibits although it will take 40-45min to finish the tour unless one wants to read the story for each display.

Yes it is open as others have said. I dont think there is any parking at the museum (its in a residential area) but it is only a very short walk from the free car parks in the town. Directions are clear and the Tourist... More
