learnt about the d-day landings and the building of the mulberry harbour. Short film well worth watching in the cinema. Good value at 8 euros each. To be able to walk outside and see the remains brought it to life.

Artifacts, models, film of the invasion. Early arrival may avoid the tour bus crowds, enhancing access to displays. Large paid pkg. out front, although on opposite end of town, free pkg. Situated right along the beach heads, it is a moving tribute to what occurred...More

Not the most modern of museums but well worth a visit with plenty of material on display and a film shown in several languages.

This small museum compliments the remains of the Mulberry harbour on the nearby beach. There are some excellent models showing just how the harbour was constructed and how it worked as well as other war time memorabilia. Well worth a visit.

Overlooking Gold Beach and the remnants of the Mulbury Harbour, this is a brilliant museum, probably the best we visited in a day of museums. The exhibits were superb, the film and slide show complimentary and the staff wonderfully friendly and helpful.
