This is a must visit. You don't need to be American to value the place which is a very well presented experience of the airborne landings in the liberation of Normandy. In particular the experience of being inside a C47 towing a glider over the...More

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.
