Our Normandy Road Trip With Kids, Inspired by WWII

Our family loves planning educational travel with our boys. We wanted to show them as many WWII sights as possible so this Normandy road trip was planned.

Watching documentaries like WWII In Colour on Netflix and movies based on the war provided an immense amount of inspiration for our itinerary and even our boys were fascinated by the history and were excited about the trip.

Dunkirk was a great place to start our trip. We arranged a home exchange just on the outskirts of the city and the location was easily accessible to places like Bruges over the border in Belgium.

Operation Dynamo – Musée Dunkerque The museum Operation Dynamo is definitely worth the trip while in Dunkirk. The museum tells the incredible story of the Battle of Dunkirk and Operation DYNAMO.

The Bunkers in Bray-Dunes It was an excellent way to explore the bunkers and let our boys run around freely.

Inside the building, an exhibition tells the story of the Battle of Dunkirk and Operation Dynamo.

Fort des Dunes Museum

One of the reasons we chose to start our Normandy road trip in Dunkirk was because of the close proximity to Bruges in Belgium.
