Free visit of the museum

The visit is generally carried out by the person who accompanies the students on an educational journey in the middle of the twenty stages of the museum. These present in a chronological progression the different stages of the war 39-45 starting from the occupation until liberation with a focus on the battle of the hurdles which took place in La Manche. The historical, military and strategic aspects are highlighted but also the daily life of the Normans during the war. During their journey through the museum, children discover and observe the details and objects of the collections collected over the years by the founders of the museum. These objects are for the most part authentic and some can be taken in hand by young people for a better understanding of the very concrete aspects of the daily life of the various actors during the war. If the accompanying person is not able to lead the visit, a member of the museum team is available (optional: + 40 € for the group).
