    Key moment in history
    We stopped here on the way from Ouistreham ferry port to Caen as you literally pass right by it. Glad we did - very interesting museum with plenty of exhibits inside and then a chance to see the original bridge outside along with tanks etc. We knew a little bit about the history of Pegasus Bridge and it was good to learn more about it.

    Family visit
    Family visit with 2 adults and 2 kids aged 15 and 12. Entry price was reasonable and there was lots of parking. Informative museum to look around before going outside to see various war items such as the real Bridge, air craft, tanks etc. not the biggest museum around but enough to visit for a couple of hours.

    A must see
    Was amazing to see the place of this incredible bravery by the 6th British Airbourne Division. Evoked quite a lot of emotions. You need to visit the nearby cafe which was the home of the first family to be liberated on the 6th June 1944 and the museum with the original bridge definitely requires a visit.

    Just like in The Longest Day?
    How brave the Brits who took this bridge via a dark Glider must have been. I loved this area. Seeing the bridge and trying to imagine the events of June 6 is a historic treat. The Horsa Glider is pretty cool too.

Nicely laid out museum with lots of interesting displays. Really enjoyed learning about the story of the gliders. Bridge was impressive. Pivotal part of the story so a must see visit.

OK, the bridge is the new bridge and the original is at the memorial. However, they have made a great replica and, of course, crossing the river is a must as is visiting the three sites where the first gliders landed.

Been wanting to visit this site for many years. Steeped in British / French history for time and memorial. Certainly one to put on your list if you are visiting Normandy.

Very Overpriced and foul tasting bitter coffee in Pegasus bridge cafe, across the bridge from the museum. Museum very good. Just avoid the cafe on the bridge!
