Well worth it!

We liked the Normandy movie a lot. The bunker was well done. We needed more time to see everything. It was, however, a little difficult getting from the train station in Caen because there were no instructions and it was difficult to find English speaking bus drivers so we had to ask random people. Also, we didn't realize how long it would take to get to the museum and travel back to the station - maybe​ 35 to 40 minutes each way.

C'est un site incontournable pour celle ou celui qui veut découvrir la réalité des conflits. On peut être un peu perdu au début de la visite, mais tout rentre dans l'ordre par la signalétique. Pour m'a part, afin de profiter pleinement de la visite entre les expositions, les projections de films et la visite du bunker, je suis resté 6 heures. Par conséquent, mes conseils sont d'arriver dès l'ouverture du matin.
