I expected the museum to be much larger but it did have quite a few interesting exhibits. The exhibit about how the floating harbors were constructed and used was especially interesting.

A few hundred yards from Omaha beach this is a lovely museum to visit to get a clearer understanding of DDay . Some fascinating artefacts relating to DDay and great displays .

Lots of things to see. Lots of equipment from both sides. Kind of a self guided thing. There is also a short movie to watch. Very close to the beaches.

We found this museum to be one of the best D-Day history museums of the many in the Normandy area that cover the D-Day times. Do not miss this one on a trip to the Omaha Beaches area.

After seeing the beach itself, it is worthwhile to visit this small museum, to get a bit more of the atmosphere of those momentous days. The movie clips are excellent, and so are the displays of weapons, uniforms, etcc.

So disappointing on every level. A yard sale of a museum with department store mannequins draped in Nazi and Allied costumes, along with weapons and material. Missed opportunities to represent the full horror and, ultimately, dignity of this conflict.

this is not a particuarly big museum, but you could easily spend a few hours in here, taking in all the details and information. There is certainly a lot to read, and lots to see. When looking at the displays, you need to take your...More

The museum is located a short distance from Omaha beach on the main road. There are a few exhibits in the parking lot; a tank, a field gun and a howitzer. Adult admission is €6,90/person, but a military discount takes a little off that. Once...More

If you only have time to visit one museum (and you should leave yourself at least two hours to see this one) while touring Omaha Beach this is definitely the one. (If you take a week, as I did, to visit Normandy, you will see...More
