What you think of the Normandy Victory Museum

Fascinating enthusiasts

Everything to please! Meticulously reconstructed scenes watered by the private collections of 4 enthusiasts who dedicated their lives to this period. Rare pieces, objects that can be touched, vehicles that can be boarded, this is a meaningful approach and what we are looking for to keep a teenager interested! One of the best WWII museum we have done!
Clairettebrunette – Tripadvisor – 11 August 2020

Interactive, fun and captivating museum

Great visit to this museum where it is possible to touch period objects (including weapons, Jeep Willis, ….). Both culturally interesting and touching through the testimonies of the inhabitants of the region, the possibility of taking a ride in a chariot but especially the honoring of women seduced us. TO RECOMMEND!

I recommend

Great museum with the little extra you can touch objects and even get in a jeep. Very good restaurant and very nice chariot ride I recommend.

From a connoisseur

Although I was quite familiar with the subject, I enjoyed the discussions the group had with the guide. I recommend !

Magnificent museum near Carentan. Back this year and still under the spell
Yannick Chambre – Google August 27, 2020

One of the best museums of its type.

We have visited many D-Day museums, most of which have their good points, but the Normandy Victory Museum is one of the very best.
It’s strength is the number of exhibits and the detail they have gone into to create the atmosphere of June 1944, from both sides. And it’s not just the military aspect they cover, but also the plight of the civilians. There is a film of interviews with older people who were children during the Occupation (although the interviews are in French with no subtitles) and a compilation of raw newsreel film, with English commentary and French subtitles. Visitors are able to interact with a small number of exhibits which children (young and old) would enjoy. For example, sitting in a jeep of the period, or trying on helmets or handling authentic weapons.

A museum that deals with a lesser-known part of history

A museum that deals with a lesser-known part of the history of the post-Normandy landings. I still learned a lot, although I had already visited many museums in the region. I also recommend the tank baptism, impressive.
Céline Da Silva – Regiondo – August 18, 2020

Must Visit if in the Area..

The best value for your € in Normandy ! Great visual display of every facet of life while the landings took place. Great static displays and plenty of War Antiques on display. A great souvenir shop and a pub ! Worth a visit and then some !

Quite a nice, self-guided museum.

Quite a nice, self-guided museum. Enjoyed that you could go through it all at your own pace and spend more time on the things that really interest you.

Great for organizing a school trip

Great time to introduce to school children. The diversity of the proposals (visit to the museum + obstacle course + armored vehicle ride) excited the students. Staff available. Super welcome .. TO BE DONE AGAIN

A great museum

A great museum and a great team they saved us by tracking our motorhome bogged down in the parking lot with their chariot as what the old can be used for the modern ???? and the experience of the chariot ride offered on the site is really to do I recommend
Jacky Lemal (Regiondo June 2020)
