Musee de la Batterie de Merville reviews
I just loved this experience. It really brought the war into reality and made me realize how awful war is. The memorabilia to read is so heartbreaking. The plane is wonderful to see more »
Nice historical site with interesting information about the British soldiers totally spoiled by no control with regards to covid. Bunkers with a little sign « only 5 persons allowed » packed with 10.... more »
Excellent site. Well laid out and informative. Lots of information available in english on the information boards and various displays in the gun batteries, including the sound and light experience in the last bunker giving an idea of what it would have been like on the site when the attack on the Battery took place. Really well worth a visit.
An excellent location to experience what the Normandy invasions were all about. Lot's of remaining bunkers to visit, with the museum being located insider the bunkers themselves. You learn all about the raid on this battery including interesting stuff about use of gliders in the attack. A restored C47 airplane is on premises to round out the collection. The sound and light show inside the last bunker is as intense as they make it sound. For a few minutes you feel like you're in the bunker while it's under attack from bombers and infantry. Definitely not for little kids. I appreciate the effort the folks who maintain this site went to making this a memorable experience.
