“Surrender site preserved”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

There are some manikins dressed in WWII uniforms in cases preceding the rooms, but the real interest is the small room with a long table lined with the maps showing the battle lines where the surrender was signed. Very interesting.

“Must See for WW2 Buffs!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Lots of very interesting displays and items from WW2 and very low admission price. The staff did not speak English but the short video presentation had English narration. The only negative was that the video viewing room needed a good vacuuming!

“Important WWII history”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Small museum, out of the way, but a significant part of WWII history. Start with the 10 minute video.

“Don't allocate too much time to this and check out opening times.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We visited on the day after the 70th D Day celebrations and were extremely lucky to be there at the same time as some D Day vets. However, this was just about the highlight of the visit. There are few items to view and I would allow no more than an hour at the most. Saying that, the place is very clean and tidy and the people there are wonderful. They make as much of a go of it as they can. Bearing in mind it is only 4 euros for an adult and you go with the above points in mind, you will still have a worthwhile visit.
