On the ground floor, the museum offers its visitors a book and gift shop.

In an atmosphere reminiscent of shops in the 1940s, visitors can browse among more than a thousand books about the Second World War and the Battle of Normandy. We also have a selection of souvenirs covering this period of history.

The book and gift shop is open during museum opening hours.
