Bayeux was the first town to be liberated in the Normandy invasion.  Its bunker shaped museum to D-Day, or "Musée Memorial de la Bataille de Normandie", has a large and impressive collection of tanks on its grounds, including a M10 Tank Destroyer and a Flame Thrower Crocodile Tank.   Its also shows about 20 minutes of battlefield footage, and presents many original relics and artefacts as it chronicles the story of the Allied move into northern France.  There's a British Commonwealth War Cemetery across the road.
