Utah Beach D-Day Museum is a commanding monument and museum dedicated to the memory of the Allied troop landings in Normandy. Built on the strategic WN5 bunker where U.S. troops first landed in 1944, the museum recounts the landings of American troops on French soil, a feat considered by many historians to be the most important military operation in recent history. Within the museum, many valuable objects tell the story of the landings.

  • We've visited a few of the D-day museums. All have been interesting and well organised. But this one is our favourite to date. We only popped in for an hour; but spent well over 2 because there's a lo...  more »

  • Over 13 000 paratroopers came ashore at Utah Beach on 6 June 1944. You are able to access the beach for free and can walk along and simply breathe in the history and think back to what it must have been like in 1944. The Utah Beach museum does have a entrance fee and is well maintained. There are a number of interactive exhibits and it does offer a fascinating insight into the historic moment. Another great D-day beach museum, and we were blessed to go all 5 beaches w/our Procom group. This museum to me was fairly good sized, lots to see inside and outside as well close to Utah beach which was also very nice. They had a snack shop and a real nice gift shop that took a lot of my money. I believe this was one of the places I started collecting Zero Euro's, there's vending machines all over that you get these from and there are different ones at each tourist place you go to, kind of like the elongated or pressed penny machines you see everywhere, cheaper than a t-shirt that I will never wear. Enjoy
  • Great museum, love the windows. Love the tanks, planes and detailed maps/accounts of what happened. Must see.
  • An absolutely fantastic museum and must do for anyone with an hour to spare while visiting Utah Beach or interested in the American contributions to the D-Day Invasion. The museum is located adjacent to a number of war remnants, itself being built on the site of the German WN-5. Exhibits inside are described in both French and English, with a well done 15 minutes movie (in alternating French and English showings) to give a great overview.
  • Most interesting, you felt as if you were on the battlefield, very well put together. A real in sight to the real thing.
  • The museum covers all sides of the occupation and invasion - really interesting.
