D-Day Museum – Arromanches-les-Bains
D-Day and Battle of Normandy museum
The D-Day Landing Museum is located in the town of Arromanches-les-Bains, the geographical center of the D-Day beaches. It is located at the exact point where the Allies have implanted, from June 7, 1944, one of the two artificial ports responsible for supplying the troops engaged in the battle of Normandy.
Initially, on the initiative of Raymond Triboulet, first sub-prefect of the liberated France, a permanent exhibition dedicated to the disembarkation is officially inaugurated on June 5, 1954 by René Coty, President of the French Republic.
The visit to the museum is divided into four parts:
– a part commented by a guide with animated models with direct view on the historical site,
– a diorama to relive the D-Day thanks to an audiovisual animation charged with emotions,
– a free discovery of the different showcases of the museum,
– a British admiralty film made up of exceptional archives that traces the construction of the artificial port, the crossing of its elements across the English Channel, its installation and its use.
After or before visiting the museum, discover the ruins of the artificial harbor and the monuments near the site.
