  • Interesting multi national experience with many exhibits that help show what truly happened in WWII in the local and wider area. The 3D film is well worth the extra euros and is a fast flowing 36 minutes that seemed shorter. Weapons of war abound with the flight simulator Experience in a genuine WWII vintage plane being a highlight. Just be aware that the sideways on orientation and smoke smells give a realistic representation of what must have happened on the 6th June 1944.
  • The entry price for all sections (museum, video and 3d plane experience) was 60Euro for 2x adults, 2x teens... it is worth the price We spent hours in here looking at the collections, the cinema movie is worth it alone. The kids found it most enjoyable and the history of the house made it all the more interesting! Definately worth a visit, would recommend
