Overlooking the beach, the museum is very interesting since it features 4 plastic models showing how the Arromanches artificial port was built by the Allied Forces. There are free guided tours of the museum in English or French and the guides explains the details of...More

This museum, and this part of history, was incredibly fascinating. The two short films, and the detailed displays and artifacts walk through the planning and preparation for construction of the port the Allies needed to maintain it's hard-fought foothold in Normandy, and it's ultimate victory...More

This museum tells the supply side of the invasion of Europe in WII. There is a 15 minute movie and many exhibits pertaining to the building of the artificial port. There are other exhibits pertainging to individual soldier participants. There is a nice souvenir shop

One of the oldest D-Day museums and it features one of the more interesting parts of history: the floating harbor. Definitely watch the short video.

Winston`s Churchill`s foresight led to installation of an improbable system that protected the Allies` ability to deliver supplies during WWII. it was interesting to learn more about yet another of his `wild ideas`that helped save lives.

The entrance fee of 8.00 euros each seemed quite high for a smallish museum, but it did give us 1 euro discount off a museum in Bayeux. Once inside, the immediate impression is that the museum is old-fashioned, with lots of glass cabinets containing artefacts...More
