It was a very interesting museum.There were exhibits both in and outside of the museum. The guide was excellent she held us spell bound with stories and facts from the Dday invasion. There were both replicas and original artefacts.

The history is great and there are information points where ever glider landed on D Day. The original bridge is in the nearby museum which we did not visit as thought it was quite expensive. Quite a busy place as coach parties and school parties...More

The Museum/Memorial is larger than what you might think. Inside there's a lot of info about both sides of the battle, and outside there's the original Pegasus Bridge, a Bailey Bridge and a mock-up Horsa glider. There's also a lot of guns, canons and vehicles...More

The story of the taking of Pegasus Bridge is one of Boy's Own heroism; a coup de main of stunning audacity mixed with courage and grit. Go to the Memorial museum it's very good. But also walk over the bridges and have a beer and...More

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?
