Musée-Mémorial de la Bataille de Normandie

Interesting
Thanks to a clear and explicit museum layout, the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy covers the events that took place from 7 June to 29 August 1944, with displays ranging from chronological to 3D models, original maps, material and uniforms. Five theme areas are devoted to General de Gaulle from 1935-46, the manmade harbours, the taking of Cherbourg, the role of aviation in the Battle of Normandy and finally the bloody "War of the hedgerows".
