About
The bunker was built in 1943/44, on a special design. I fact, as the coast was very low, the Organization Todt had to erect the 17 meters tower to increase the range finder’s range. This was the Fire Control post of the defenses of the river Orne...more

Quite a small museum with interesting exhibits although it will take 40-45min to finish the tour unless one wants to read the story for each display.

Amazed by the size of this place. It’s like a tardis - it just keeps going. There are some very interesting displays and a working viewfinder at the top. Interesting vehicles outside the building too that you can see free of charge.

Plenty of info on the events around WWII and Normandy. the tower is several floors high and there is no lift. but worth the effort to get to the top.

Excellent piece of history. It was a place with detailed history built around panorama. It kept me amused for a long time as I was immersed in the moment. As it is based in a real bunker it was like walking in history. To visit...More

Yes it is open as others have said. I dont think there is any parking at the museum (its in a residential area) but it is only a very short walk from the free car parks in the town. Directions are clear and the Tourist... More
