Museum of the Battle of Normandy

Attractions and places of interest

Bayeux was the first town liberated during the Battle of Normandy in 1944 and it is fittingly the home of a Museum dedicated to the Battle that raged for over 2 months across the region. The museum contains displays of weaponry, uniforms and other military objects and takes a chronological approach from the period prior to the German assualt to the Normandy Landings on D-Day in 1944.

There are also various tanks outside including British and American tanks. Opposite the museum is the British War Cemetery (Cimetière Militaire Allemand), the largest British cemetery in Normandy and a sombre testament to the horrors of war, holding nearly 4,000 British soldiers' graves.
