We arrived at 1:30 PM in Grandcamp-Maisy by the Musée des rangers, but it closed between 1:00 and 2:30 PM. There was a terrible rotten fish smell coming from the sea and lingering in the village, so we decided to visit the German cemetery first and come back later.
Later we visited the museum and saw a movie about the training from the 2nd Ranger Battalion and conquering Pointe du Hoc. It was very interesting to see actual footage of the area from WWII.
Unfortunately, the terrible smell was also inside the museum. The curator of the museum did apologize and stated that the smell was not normal.
