This museum may not appeal to everyone, but to those curious about all the ships and equipment lost during and around the D-Day operations, there is an incredible wealth of recovered tanks, ship materials, and history on display.

Our family really liked this little museum, which is all about war-related things recovered from the sea since WWII. Objects large and small, diagrams, videos, photos are part of the display. It's a fascinating change from most of the other attractions in the area.
