“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Different to any other museum in the D Day landing area. We visited on a wet morning during our fantastic week in the region for the 70 year commemorations.
The film is projected on screens right round the room, so loads of different images and lots I have certainly never seen before, all brilliantly put together with very moving music.
There were lots of school children in when we were there, and their attention never wavered once, all as gripped as we were.
Highly recommended, good value and one of the many many highlights of our visit. You can park next to the museum for 3 Euros for the day, and can then walk down to Arromanches afterwards which is good idea on busy days as the parking in the town is very limited.

“Moving and Extremely Well-Made”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Even our kids (11 and 9) liked this movie, and that's saying something. Incredible shots of the landing, most of which I had never seen before (indeed, they claim that it's "never-before seen footage" from archives). No dialog except for the words of the leaders (Churchill, Roosevelt, etc). Great graphics depicting the progression of the war. Well worth the admission price. We were only in the gift shop a few moments because we had to leave, but I would have definitely considered purchasing this video -- not sure it was even available for sale.

“Moving, humbling, educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We visited as a group of 10 adults and 8 children aged 4-13 and we were all moved by this. The film coupled with the location really hammer home what happened and the impact it had.

A walk down to the pretty town is recommended after watching the film.

“New film this visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

They have a new film this year but still worth a visit. A place to go and soak up the atmosphere and experience the D Day landings

“emotional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

What a fantastic experience. It made a very emotional impact. The film is only about 20 mins long but the impact is very much real. The faces of all the soldiers as they were all waiting to set of was so hard to watch as they were all smiling and laughing.
I would tell anyone to go as it makes it all seem so real.
There is a charge and i would say it was well worth the 5 euros.
