  • I have to say, compared to the Juno beach museum, this one was smaller and had less details. Mostly wax figures and a 15 minute movie on 1 floor. I think its great for kids and those who are just getting familiar with d day but if you are looking for details, I would look elsewhere.
  • Really cool museum, we went to all of the beaches and museums, and this one has the most small items, you can see so many guns and bombs that both sides used. I believe they also write when some of the times were found, and some gas masks were found in 2017, which means they are still discovering stuff all around the place! Very interesting!
