Sitting facing the beach it commemorates, the No4 Commando Museum is small, but contains some lovely artifact. The DVD telling the story of the Free French part of D-Day is very interesting, a story little told in the UK. The information boards are in both...More

Excellent small museum with a very good film of the training of the commandos and their return to France with some moving images. Subtitles. Lots of items on display - they cram a lot in the limited space in this traditional museum.

This is a small museum, focusing on the French commandos who took place in the attack on Ouistreham. The highlights are the film about this, and the excellent models which show the layout of German defences. The other exhibits are large collections of the normal...More
