On a private tour of the area . We knew the story and this just brings it all into reality . We loved the cafe and met the owner who was a child in the war. The museum is well worth a visit .

Heroes came here and liberated the area, and this memorial is a fitting tribute to their actions on the night of 5th/6th June 1944. We should never forget what these people did for us, and whilst memorials like this one remain, we never will.

We all had a great couple of hours here. Very interesting exhibits and personal accounts. Make sure you explore the gardens fully as behind the bridge itself is part of a glider and a repro glider, would recommend for all ages. Plenty of parking and...More

If you are a history buff, and of WWII in particular, this is a must see for you. The story of Pegasus Bridge, and how accurate the British gliders were arriving at the bridge at night, is simply amazing. To go that distance and land...More

At least a couple of hours.......There are exhibits outside, a short film to watch and other exhibits inside. Also worth visiting nearby Cafe Gondree.
