Interesting museum . Small so only there for about 1-1/2 hrs. Glad the chap didn’t charge for my 3 children who were 3,3&5 as it would have been too expensive . Good informative displays but a shame the film is only in French.

One of the more daring attacks of WW2 is commemorated and recalled here. The courage of the soldiers combined with the skill of the pilots is quite awe inspiring. One of the must sees of the D-Day sites.

At least a couple of hours.......There are exhibits outside, a short film to watch and other exhibits inside. Also worth visiting nearby Cafe Gondree.
