Owner description: Situated near the British Military Cemetery of Bayeux, the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy narrates the battles which took place in Normandy after the D-Day landings, between 7th June and 29th August 1944. The collections of military equipment, the diorama and the archival films allow the visitor to grasp the enormous effort made during this decisive battle in order to restore peace in Europe.

This museum provides a well balanced and well presented history of WWII. We were not overwhelmed by detail. Exhibits were well organized and there was a good "flow" through the facility. It is located in Bayeux and is an easy walk from the central part of the City.

It's hard to believe that such brutality took place in such a beautiful and tranquil setting.The attention to detail and homage to so many innocent lives add to the drama of the site.It was our 2nd visit and yet we feel we can keep returning as it is such an important monument.

Excellent museum with a very good film to fill out the details of the story and all the artifacts and dioramas on display.

For me the best part was seeing the children and the parents educating their kids in history, explaining the exhibits. I got busted taking a picture of a dad with his kids. No photos, a city ordinance....only drawback.

Especially enjoyed the video which gave a very good general overview of the battle of Normandy. Lots of well presented information, artefacts and film footage.

This museum is very well done. It is worth the time to spend several hours here to get a good basis for the places you may visit in the area. I think it could hold the interest of those who know a great deal about Normandy and those who may not be as familiar with the history.
