This is an excellent history museum on wwii with short films about major events including the bombing of london, the massacre in Nanking, the holocaust, propaganda during the war, a bit on the crucial fighting in the USSR and of course a major focus on the normandy invasion. Should dedicate at least 2 hours to the museum. Bus 2 comes from downtown Caen and the bus times are written at each stop. Minimum time for museum 3 hours.
At the memorial, we also arranged an excellent last minute half day (5 hr starting at 2 pm) normandy invasion tour with 7 passengers and an English speaking guide with five stops showing and explaining Point Hoc, Omaha beach, German bunkers, the American cemetery and the sea blocks to calm the landings. Tour was good and cost 64 Euros per person with discount coupon from our hotel and including museum entry. Bathrooms easily available at third stop at American cemetery - difficult but possible at two other stops.
