Specialty Museum Museum
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.

The Museum also has clear models for how the Mulberry Harbour was built. Of course, can also be found in the "military costumes dressed up manikins" and the battle of the bulge-related artefacts.

  • Very interesting place to see. Loads of things to look at. Fascinating collection of artefacts.

  • Well worth the visit. Never knew the historical significance of the harbor.
  • The displays help to understand the efforts undertaken during the DDay invasion.
  • Yes, you need to come in an tour this place. What a great way to start your adventure for this beautiful little town. When you are done, explore the beach too.
