Incredibly interesting and humbling place to visit, as with most memorials. Needed longer but we were on a flying visit.

As a Canadian, I knew, of course, of the heroics of our troops at Juno Beach, but who knew of their involvement around other beaches? Pegaus Bridge was taken by British Paratroopers, but the Canadian presence throughout Normandy was quite a surprise. This site is...More

Awe inspiring event with surgical precision and outstanding bravery. Quite incredible, and so vital that it succeeded. Humbling.

My two sons and I made our third visit to Pegasus Bridge. There is a magnificent museum there. When we were there in March, 2018 there were several British veterans who fought in Pegasus.

Embarrassed to say that I didn’t fully understand what actually happened here and how it affected and changed WWII. All of the exhibits tell a story not only of what actually happened but individuals stories. Very interesting and moving story with a lot to see...More

A lot of the D-day history is focused on the American activities, this site opens your eyes to the huge roll the Brits played in helping make the events of June 6th such a success. The museum is full of personal stories to help explain...More

Probably the most famous bridge in Normandy. You can find a few small monuments and also one preserved tank around the bridge. Visited in 9/2012

We had a whistle stop tour of this bridge where we learned the history behind it and had a moment to watch the traffic pass across it. Unfortunately there were no boats passing through so we didn't see the bridge in action.
