Lovely little memorial with lots of artifacts and personal stories from the brave men who stormed Pegasus Bridge. Was inciteful to learn how the gliders work and see a real-size replica along with real glider wrecks. Gift shop is nice also - not too pricey.

At least a couple of hours.......There are exhibits outside, a short film to watch and other exhibits inside. Also worth visiting nearby Cafe Gondree.
