Really enjoyed our visit to the museum. Being a structural engineer, my dad had told me the story about pegasus bridge and I found it fascinating. I was surprised at how emotional I felt during the tour seeing so many personal posessions and the stories behind them. Such brave men with such a story to tell. Well worth a visit... More

The bridge sadly isn't the original as that in the museum but it looks exactly the same. It is free to walk across and gives good views down the canal. It doesn't take long before you have seen everything and you could visit while passing by.

The real bridge was removed in 1994, but this one is a similar design. The main photo at the top of the Tripadvisor page is out of date as the Centaur tank has been moved to the museum over the canal. The area is worth a visit, even just to look at the markers where the attacking gliders landed, so... More

This is one of the very early piece of France liberated on D-day. The bridge itself is small but walking on it give an idea of what it must have been like for British commandos to take it. There is almost no cover on the crossing. You can see the old bridge in the museum park where it is kept,... More

Outstanding. Humbling. Awe inspiring. A must visit which helps understand the feats undertaken by some remarkable men. It also tells some amazing personal stories. Don't miss the memorials near the bridge where the three gliders landed. Then think about the circumstances under which they managed to get so close. Thank you.

I had not known about the Pegasus Bridge; it was pointed out to me by our friends who were travelling with us in Normandy. Close to the original bridge are museums containing a C-47 cargo plane and a big Horsa glider such as those which landed with British troops who captured this bridge and the adjacent one (Orne River bridge...

A great museum. Loved the film they showed and the gentleman doing the tour had such a great knowledge. I could have listened to him all day. Sadly the weather wasn't great but this didn't deter from the experience. I would highly recommend this museum and will quite likely go again given the opportunity.

This area is well served for museums but this has to be the best. Your visit starts with a very moving film, after which the internal exhibits a very informative with in particular the story of the aerial landing told by the personal memories of those who participated which are also so moving . Then you can take in the... More
