Located in front of the actual vestiges of the Mulberries, Musee du debarquement devotes its exhibits to the incredible feat of technology the British achieved in building the artificial harbor at this site. Watch the period newsreel in English and French. Impressive, dynamic scale models show how the floating docks rolled with the waves and tides. A 75-foot section of Mulberry floating bridge is on display outside. Military equipment is also on view, including an American half-track armored vehicle and a Higgins boat.

  • A museum located on the beach with a magnificent view on the dike. Models are superb and the very informative film if you are in the area stop.

  • One of the countless, similar museums about landing of June 6 ' 44. Here is in the last fifteen years nothing changed: lots of glass cabinets with uniforms, weapons, medals, photos, models, a film presentation of a quarter that are at least 40 years old.. Good for visitors who know absolutely nothing of the landing and never have seen a contemporary museum. Cheap too.

  • An effective guide, or even somewhat higher power, and a well-made route, punctuated by a very interesting movie! Very nice shop...

  • So great to see what those amazing soldiers went through and beat those Nazi forces. Almost completely ruined by those stupid French locals putting up a children's funfair ride just outside! Why? An insult to our brace lads who gave their lives to clear the occupying forces from France on 6th June 1944.
  • While it covers on the event that happened only there it was well done with many great setups and movie. I learned something new.
  • Very informative about the landing of men and supplies after D-Day. Films in several languages. Start your tour on the left and go clockwise thru the exhibits. Shop the store before you watch the film back at the front. You exit the museum after the film.
  • Very interesting, quite detailed with graphic displays explaining everything clearly in English as well as French. The children were as enthralled as the adults
  • It's a good museum to know what happened in WW2 but it's not as good as other in the region. I recomend to visit the town anyway because it's really friendly and has cute cafes and streets.
