The tactical is always impressive. The museum grounds are perfect for a photographic interpretation of WWII France.
Visitors to the tactical battle get an up-close-and-personal view of the action. The museum grounds offers an "ant-farm" view of the action where the crowd may actually feel the concussive shock of the small arms fire. This birds-eye view, along with a narration of action via loudspeaker, makes for an exceptional educational experience.
