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.

  • Often too much world and noise, unlike that of the orientation table with its films and ohotos, that of worm with the circumstances of the landing, or the COURSEULLES with the history of the Canadian front and Museum during d-day, this Museum presents collections of objects and models, you know.

  • Museum to visit. Very friendly staff. Guide competent and passionate. Many didactic models, two small cinemas (interesting films), souvenir beautiful shop (books). Sea view and the remains of the artificial port. Avoid many school groups...

  • A short drive from Bayeux, this museum was definitely worth the stop. We originally stopped to see the 360 museum just at the top of the hill. We walking down the walkway to the museum to a nice harbor/pier which had views of the British floating harbor. There are 2 short films in the musem which piece together all the aspects of the harbor in relation to the war efforts. If you want a guided English tour it has to be pre coordinated.
  • The museum itself is good with lots of displays that show what it was like why operation mulberry was in operation. The best part is the beach in front of the museum, when the tide goes out you can walk right up and touch the sunken barges and boats from wwII, the view of the harbor is even better once you know the story
  • Very impressive, the 360 degree film was super and to think it is real footage . Go down to the beach and see the pontoons and visit the museum. Such heroism by the allies and the locals. If not for them i might not have been born.
  • Needs a bit of new interpretation but great videos and friendly staff. Perfect location to tell the story.
  • Although it feels a bit outdated, it is one of the best museums out there that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. They have a very interesting display of Port Winston, really depicting the wonder that it was. Also the staff are multilingual kind and very helpful.
