This is a private museum that does not offer a lot. The diary as are really up informative and there is little to recommend this space in an area so rich in good museums.

I was mildly disappointed with the experience with the experience of the museum. There are far better museums in the area that go into more detail than what was shown here. The displays are okay and tell a brief history on what went on in the area during WW2. I thought it was more of an overview. It also goes... More

A small but well represented museum at Gold beach. Learned more about the British sector on D-Day plus about the transatlantic mail flight. One of a number of fine local museums...

One of the smaller Normandy museums. Describing two events - the ditching of the first mail flight from the USA to Europe in 1927 just off here, and the preparation and landings on Gold Beach.

A great tour and museum. Lots of history and a trip back to a very unfortunate time for Europe and the world.

Having read some previous reviews I was already nervous but having got there it is in the community centre attached to the local school, the French lady behind the counter was incredibly rude and to be honest it had little to offer that the larger more well presented museums/ memorials can't provide!!
