What to Expect
The German defences WN5: 2 letters and a number identified the German stronghold of blockhouses watching the beach of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. The Museum is built around one of these. German objects evoke this strong military presence.

The German occupation: Leaflets, testimony and objects reveal the terrible occupation years in the French department of La Manche.

“Victory in the Sand”: relive the landing preparations and follow the sequence of events of this historic day hour-by-hour with this


Allied Strategy: A major military operation, Overlord required meticulous preparation, led by commander “Ike” Eisenhower.

Naval forces: To best protect the infantrymen, “Force U” attacked the enemy from the sea. Models show the different types of vessels involved.

Air forces: The victory also played out in the air. An omnipresent airborne army served to crush enemy positions. A vast array

of objects – including equipment worn by pilots – recount this episode.

Land forces: Over 23,000 soldiers landed on French soil at Utah Beach on 6 June 1944. This space pays tribute to them.

6 June 1944: D-Day on Utah Beach. From the first bombings on 5 June to the landing of infantrymen on the morning of 6 June,

relive the timeline of events through testimony and objects brought together in the centre of the panoramic room, offering a spectacular view of the beach where it all took place.

The Link-Up: The parachutists dropped on 5 June and the infantrymen who landed on the morning of the 6th join up: the linkup

is complete. Parachutist Lieutenant Winters recounts this episode.

From Utah to Cherbourg:  The push to Cherbourg, through the wooded countryside, was a bloody one: emergency medical centres were

set up, as shown by the material on display here.

The artificial port at Utah Beach: Pending the capture and restoration of the port of Cherbourg, an artificial port was built off the coast of Utah. Photos show the sheer size of the construction.

This is a decent museum located right on Utah Beach. The exhibitions are fine, but don’t necessarily follow a logical order. There was a lot of reading and some interesting objects. The film was OK. In comparison with the Airborne Museum or the Caen Memorial,...More

Moving account of the events of D Day landings. Very busy as it was French holiday season, but numbers were well managed. We visited the beach as well, which seemed popular despite the astonishing number of flies!!!

This is a really important part of history where we all need to remember the sacrifices others made at the D day landings and at other parts of the world war. The beach is so very like our neighbouring beach in the South East of...More
