My husband and I visited the museum on our way to the Normandy Beaches. We found the museum to be well planned, informative and interesting. We left the museum with a respect for all of those involved. Thought provoking morning. Definitely worth a visit

You could spend hours in the museum, such is the volume and quality of the artifacts on display. The large exhibits outdoors are awe inspiring too. Overall, this is highly recommended to anyone touring the area.

About €6 euros. But if you keep the ticket, you can get a discount off some other attractions around the area. Merville Battery is good 👍
