What an incredible experience! Wow. We are so glad we ended up with this one! It was a very full day and truly nothing was left out. Our first stop was a Battery where we got to go inside the bunkers and learn about battle area there. There are still in tact cannons from DDay inside some of the bunkers which was crazy to witness. We then went to Omaha Beach, and and got to spend some time walking the area after our guide shared the history there. Afterwards we went to Point Du Hoc where the US Rangers climbed the ocean cliffs in order to take control of that stronghold. It was surreal to see the ground covered in huge divots where ally bombs were dropped. We stopped for lunch at a local Creperie, then spent time at the DDay Memorial and Cemetery. We ended with cider tasting at a local cider farm which was incredible and such a unique experience! Olivia, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and personable and her English was perfect. It was an experience we will never forget!
This museum is huge! but so informative i wasn't aware of his many conflicts the French were involved in, so informative. We did have an issue at Napoleon Tomb where our phone ticket wouldn't scan, we then got accused of bring a fake ticket & it being a photo when it was on the app was this wasn't the case. We got sent to the ticket desk who just told us its nothing to do with them & wasn't bothered. After going back & forth the ticket desk decided to just give us a ticket to go in but i think it was cause they close at 5pm this was 4:30. So be prepared with Printed tickets just encase as we were nearly not allowed in But this is definitely worth a visit.
A lot of walking! I would recommend that you wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking involved. Went through security no hassle, was advised by a lovely security guard that we see napoleon's tomb first then the army museum. The tombs of Napoleon and the French army generals was something to behold. But the army museum has to be the best, different floors holding different, rich history. You can take your time going around. Took us 3 hours to see it all.
Not always, the ticket is able to help uou skip the line, as always you need to pass security first. So if you come at low season and to a site not so hot, it isbetter to buy ticket on the site. From time to time, you need anyway to buy ticket for audio guide at ticket office.
Well worth a visit if you are interested in history, especially from an armament view. From knights to Napolean and on to modern war. The buildings and displays are amazing. Need comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking.
