Long Description:
"Located in the former German radar station just outside Douvres-la-Délivrande, this museum demonstrates the essential role played by radar during the Second World War and, in particular, the vital contribution it made to Allied success in the Battle of Britain and the Battle of the Atlantic. The station was one of the most important radar detection links in the Atlantic Wall defences in France. At the site you will discover two remarkably well preserved bunkers and a highly original display explaining the role of radar and the development of radar technology.

Features

The only restored WWII radar station that is open to the public. It houses a unique example of the Wurzburg Riese radar."
