This is a replica bridge. The museum has the real one. Nice to walk on it but that is all really. Go into the cafe to look at the memorabilia but only have a coffee. Food not worth buying and over priced. Def go museum

From 0016 to 0018 on 6 June three gliders landed within 50m of the bridge. The soldiers then took the bridge and held it despite counterattacks until relieved by Lord Lovet and his commandos. The courage and skill of these soldiers is without question.

Best part of the Museum is the outdoor displays: the original bridge, a Horsa glider, and the Bailey bridge.

an astonishing bit of history. Almost unbelievable this happend. It is so good that the bridge was copied so that it is possible to have a glimpse of what happened.

If you visit the museum, you have to take the 2 minute walk to the bridge itself and walk across it. There is a little park to the side of it with memorials to the men who landed here and liberated the town.

It depends on how interested you are in WW2 but The Bridge and museum are a must as is the Cafe.We had a nice ham roll and coffee there. Also the War cemetery at Ranville. Hope this helps?
