The Atlantic Wall Museum at Ouistreham (Normandy) is inside the old German headquarter which was in charge of the batteries covering the entrance of the river Orne and the canal, at the very eastern extreme of the D-Day beach landings on Sword Beach.The 52ft high concrete tower has been fully restaured to make it look how it was on the 6th of june 1944.

The museum has a landing craft, a V1 rocket and tanks outside and multi-level displays of WWII guns, grenades and other equipment inside, as well as maintaining features of the defence bunker itself. 

The video features some general views inside and outside the bunker and ends with a model showing a cross section of the German beach defenses at Normandy.
