Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy in Bayeux

Your stay in our hotel in Caen at the Best Western Plus Le Moderne**** will be an opportunity to discover Normandy and its many places steeped in history.

High place of memory, let's start with the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy in Bayeux, accessible in 30 minutes by car from our hotel.


Immerse yourself in the history of the Normandy landings.

At the gateway to the D-Day landing beaches, the Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy is located near the Bayeux British Military Cemetery. It presents the involvement of Normandy during the Second World War by giving an overview of the events during the war.

Covering an exhibition area of almost 2,300 m², the museum tells the remarkable story of what happened in the Normandy campaigns: from the advance of the Allied troops on D-Day on 6 June 1944 to the liberation of Paris on 25 August 1944.


An invitation to go back in time

As part of the museographic journey, the museum presents the film « Normandie 44, victoire décisive à l’Ouest », based on archival documents. This film, made by a historian of the Second World War, explains the major operations of the Battle of Normandy.

The museum also displays military equipment used during the fighting on the D-Day landing beaches, such as bulldozers, jeeps and cannons.

The main objective of this museum is to share the history of the Second World War and to serve as a place of remembrance, while honouring the memory of civilians and fallen soldiers.
