Wonderfully appointed museum with excellent facts and static displays. This must be taken in along with the original site of the bridge and the marker stones and plaques for where the gliders actually came to rest.

The museum is very interesting, with some great artefacts and lots of interesting personal stories of a heroic event on D-day -1. Everything has English/French versions. Only gripe was that the French version of the film was preceded by a short lecture using the interactive...More

Excellent museum and presentations. The site itself is incredible, especially on a bike ride. We stopped by straight off the boat initially in great weather. We returned after visiting Melville battery and it was extremely worthwhile. I’ve passed this site so many times racing to...More

To see this site, you must pay to enter the museum. We didn't have time to tour the museum so missed out on seeing this war specimen. Too bad, really, that you can't visit it without entry into the museum.

Always wanted to visit the bridge and the memorial museum was great. A fantastic overview of operations is given in multiple languages, we had ours in English and was very clear and informative. Highly recommend a visit.

Such a gorgeous piece of history one should see and read about. It's fascination to hear and read why this bridge was so important during the war

A poignant and very interesting museum. Excellent tour guide who took us around the outside part of the museum after the film- very knowledgeable and a great story teller. Well worth a visit.

World War Two bridge first one the British secured. We visited the museum which held the original bridge. It was an interesting museum however we felt that there should be a military discount for ex services. There is also no discount for those with disabilities.

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?
