The Battle of Normandy (June 6–Aug 29, 1944) is told in compelling detail in this bunker-like building. Displays of beach landings, maps, tanks, and weapons recall the battle, during which Bayeux was among the first towns to be liberated. A 25-min. film shows of news clips from the period. The Commonwealth Cemetery across the street contains 4,144 graves of British soldiers who were killed during the battle.
