Musee Memorial de la Bataille de Normandie Reviews
Signage to find the place is not the best but having got inside this is a really interesting museum I would allow a good 90 minutes so if you are gong in the morning get there at 10-1015. Why... more »
Worth a visit if in town- nice overview before a D-Day tour. Don’t forget to visit the war cemetery as well. more »
A lot of detail, and interesting exhibits. Nice to follow the timeline after the landings. Didn't have anything on the civilian populace, which was a shame, and whilst I found the information panels interesting, it was hard to keep the kids as engaged. Good vehicle displays. Located in a lovely town, and really good value, especially when combined with either of the other two museums in bayeux. The war cemetery in the town is on the other side of the road, and you spend time there too when visiting. Recommended.
For those with interest in WW2 history the museum is worth a visit. It has lots of artifacts on display. Especially on a rainy day visitors to Normandy can spend 2-3 hours going through the museum. The inbuilt cinema showing D-Day and the destruction of war is thought provoking. It also has a nice gift shop.
