Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Its one of the better museums in Normandy. Not the best, but worth a visit. You can learn a lot about the artificial harbours. The remains can still be seen today.
  • This museum is a gem. Full mockup of the "portable" port and bridges that allowed the allies to bring supplies and vehicles to the beach. Amazing. The guided tour is a must.
