Your at Normandy wondering which museum to go to...well this is the one and it is the one all the tour groups go to so do it and give yourself two hours. Parking is free and there is a cafe on site.

We enjoyed this small museum. Lots of interesting artifacts from the airborne drops on D-Day. Good museum to add to your day if youre in the Ste Mere Eglise area. Right across the street from the center of town.

Well stocked, well equipped, well priced and a great, modern interactive experience using an iPad throughout the museum. A great way for kids too to go 'treasure hunting' and keep them busy. This buys time to look closer at the historical pieces.

Great exhibits, well told factual base and innovative interactive media. Allow 2 hours or more per visit. The Museum does not have its own car park but the town has plenty of parking.

This museum does an excellent job. We went to a few museums in Normandy and this was our favorite. There is so much to see and it really helps you picture what it was like at the time of the Battle of Normandy.

This is a must visit for any American who wants to honor those who fought in WW ll. The Waco Glider and C47 are great props. This is where you learn what happened on D-Day!

Especially the Neptune part was brilliant with its impression of being in a glider or on the church sqaure.
