Really enjoyed the famous cafe nearby, a walk over the new bridge to the Pegasus Memorial with Pegasus Bridge itself (original) in the grounds. We were a family group with children and they enjoyed themselves too, great overall attraction a look forward to visiting again.

The first sight of Pegasus Bridge (the reconstructed one) is moving: you can imagine what the ground troops felt as they crossed it and the original cafe alongside the bridge remains. The museum houses the original bridge, which you can walk over. Again, it's quite...More
