Great stuff but it is now closed indefinitely. Funding issues. Owned by ex-Mayor of Grandcamp who collected materials since D Day. Home of Normandy Ranger battalions-the 2d and 5th.

This is mostly information boards with a few relics and mementoes also with a film about the Rangers. The info was very clearly laid out and gave a good overview of the rangers and their objective on D-Day. Worth a visit.

We visited this small seafront museum in the attractive town of Grandcamp-Maisy as part of our tour on Normandy beaches and landing grounds. The museum is small and is purely dedicated to the American Rangers, particularly the operation of the 2nd Ranger battalion at Pointe...More

This is not, in truth, a great museum. The artefacts on display are sparse, and - ignoring their associations - rather commonplace. But the whole place is lifted by its close attention to one of the most fiercely-contested actions of the Normandy landings: the assault...More
