Musée du Débarquement

Located near the artificial harbor of Arromanches in Normandy, a major site of the Battle of Normandy, the D-Day Museum exhibits 2000 objects that belonged to soldiers. It invites visitors to discover the history of the artificial harbor of Arromanches, which was the key to victory in the Battle of Normandy. It was created in 1954, several years after the landing of Allied troops in Normandy.

It is the first museum built to commemorate June 6, 1944 and the Battle of Normandy. The different steps of the Allied landings June 6, 1944 are presented, from the design of the artificial port of Arromanches to the release of the Normandy coast, using written and audiovisual materials as well as animated models that trace the key battle of World War II.

Note that the remains of the famous artificial harbor "Mulberry B" at Arromanches, which was mainly used to refuel in men, supplies and equipment for the soldiers present at the front of the Battle of Normandy, can be seen on the beach a few tens meters of the Museum of the Landing.
