AIRBORNE MUSEUM PEGASUS BRIDGE

'MEMORIAL PEGASUS'


This new museum only opened in June 2000 and tells the story of 6th (Airborne) Division on 6th June 1944 - D Day. It replaces the old one that used to be alongside Pegasus Cafe. Inside are many artifacts, uniforms, weapons and vehicles connected with the fighting, as well as an excellent film show. The highlight of the visit is being able to walk across the original Pegasus Bridge, which is preserved in the grounds of the museum, after it was replaced some years ago.

Inside the Museum

The museum is open from February to November every year, and in the summer months opening times are 09.30 - 18.30.
