A must see by definition. If you visit Normandy you will see quite a few Sherman Tanks and war items in the many museums and memorials, but none like these. Apart from the amazing tanks, this small and familiar museum can boast of many unique...More

A great place to see how the recovery of underwater artefacts was accomplished. It really makes you appreciate all of the hard work that was put in following the war. Some nice little personal stories too.
