This is a new and exciting museum that just opened in May of 2017. It is very different from most of the older established museums in the area. Firstly it is situated on an old Normandy airfield. I love that they keep that brief moment...More

This attraction entry should be removed as this museum doesn't exist any more. The new Normandy Victory Museum has opened as a completely different museum on the site with completely new displays. That is a 5 star review attraction.

Very nice museum. My 13 years old son liked it a lot. It is very interesting. There are a lot of objects and some of them can be manipulated.

Re-visited here guiding a group of motorcyclists touring WW2 sites in Normandy. After bragging it up to them we arrived to find it was shut. There was actually no sign it had ever been there in the first place!!

This place had some amazing pieces of history. It is very unfortunate they had to close their doors. I understand the revenue was not enough to support the museum from the day it opened in 2013.
