It allowed me to understand a lot more operations on this very special day. The fact that the original bridge is still exposed and can be mounted on it is really very moving. We can observe the impact of bullets. We went there in March so no guided tour but it's really interesting.

Our guide (unfortunately I forgot his name!) was a great enthusiast who conveyed with happiness the rich history of this place. Not to be missed!
Thoroughly enjoyed this well laid out and informative museum. The indoor part flows well around a central map-room and the outside has plenty to keep you interested and is again well laid out. All information on the exhibits is in French and English and guided tours are available. Good toilets and shop and the entrance fee was reasonable, well worth a visit!
Nice museum. Especially dedicated to gliders and the taking of Pegasus bridge by the British paratroopers.
