An excellent museum, beautifully laid out, and fantastic staff, well led by Mark Worthington. Wonderful memories.

Reste en sécurité mes amis!

Je pense bien à vous tous. Bon courage.

Dommage que le Pegasus ne soit plus sur l’eau mais dans un champ

Je suis tellement triste de savoir qu'un si beau lieu de mémoires ferme à son tour ses portes... À très bientôt j'espère. Catherine

Sad times, stay safe and hopefully we can get to visit again soon.

Good luck to France in overcoming the virus.

Thinking of you all from here in Virginia in the US. When I think of strength and bravery, I think of your country and the other allies in WWII.

Its terrible to hear you need to close... again... there will be better times soon! All the best and stay save and healthy! ❤️

We can’t wait to get back out there and bring more groups to your excellent museum and memorial.

I was lucky enough to visit Pegasus a few years ago. With luck I will return. Good Luck France from Nova Scotia, Canada 🇨🇦

Love the museum, love France and its people. See you again one day soon hopefully.

I was able to visit several years ago too, very moving. Best wishes from Utah USA🇺🇸

Stay safe and well.

Mary B Bugg in remembrance of your dad ♥️

Harry was 18 years old, serving as a Royal Engineer, when he landed on Gold Beach on 6th June 1944. He fought in Normandy at Caen and in the Falaise Pocket.
Harry who has visited the Memorial Pegasus on a number of occasions raised over £25 000 for the Normandy Memorial Trust which is managing the project for the new memorial to the fallen under construction at Ver sur Mer.
The Queen decorated Harry, from St Austell in Cornwall, with the MBE for his outstanding fund raising efforts.

Claude Louis, former mayor of Saint Vaast en Auge, has sadly passed away following an illness bravely fought.
Claude, along with his family, was a staunch supporter of the D-Day commemorations notably in his village where 12 soldiers of 6th Airborne Division are buried.
Every year in June, veterans, their families and friends accompany British and Canadian servicemen and women to pay their respects to their fallen comrades. Claude, with his son Ludovic and their family always assured that they received a special welcome.
Claude enjoyed visiting the Memorial Pegasus and regularly attended the commemorations at Pegasus Bridge along with his friends from the Mont Canisy Battery.
The future commemorations are now in the capable hands of his son Ludovic.
Claude we will miss your down to earth straightforward approach to life, your integrity, and your humor.
Rest in Peace.

Students of the Tunon International School at Caen visited the museum today.
The school is one of the world’s most reputable centres of education in the domain of the hospitality industry specializing in tourisme, hoteliers, aviation, events and also the sports industry.
The students were interested to learn about D-Day but also how the museum functioned on a day to day basis.
The curator reminded the students, all in their late teens and early twenties, that the men and woman involved in the conflict 76 years ago were the same age as themselves.
