A walk back in time through Normandy's World War 2 opened in April 2005 in Quinéville on the Channel Coast, the Mémorial dee la Liberté REtrouvée (Memorial to Freedom regained) takes visitors on a chronological path through the major events of the WWII, in a modern discovery centre covering 1,000 sq.m.
Life-sized reconstructions, with 75 mannequins reresenting civilians and soldiers and period vehicles, plunge the visitor into the atmophere of the time.
The 1940s road, with its shops, houses, and sound effects, is not to be missed, and there's an authentic blockhaus along the way ! With its clear explanations of daily life for the French under the Occupation, this museum will fascinate women, me and children alike...
A must-see part of any tour of the Normandy Landing Beaches.
