Great museum and memorial for the British paratroopers that took and held this key bridge during the d-day assault. Very well done and well maintained. Very interesting for any WW2 history buff/historian.

Fabulous museum and visitor centre. Pauline's talk and tour were the highlight of our tour of the Normandy Beaches. She brought the whole thing to life and her anecdotes of talks with veterans were so poignant. Very well done.

Great museum with the original bridge and other kit on show. The film in the museum is very good, with a handy diorama on show also.

It is a must see on the D-Day experience. We came straight off the ferry and headed straight for the bridge and the memorial museum. The bridge and the cafe are an immediate attraction and first point of call. The museum both inside and out,...More

This site will help you understand the stunning efforts of the small group of Allied soldiers who captured this, the first site in France liberated on the night of 5/6 June 1944. Take note of how big the Horsa glider replica is and imagine putting...More

Excellent and knowledgeable staff contribute greatly to an informative and moving memorial to some very brave people. The exhibits/displays are sympathetically and poignantly presented. I was also impressed with the range of items in the shop - including a good selection of books.
