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 history of the Normandy landings is officially inaugurated on June 5, 1954 by René Coty, President of the French Republic.

Featuring a new museography since 2023, the museum tour is divided into seven parts:
– a British Admiralty film featuring exceptional archive footage of the construction of the artificial harbor, the crossing of its components across the English Channel, its installation and use;
– the model gallery, with a direct view of the historic site;
– the room dedicated to Europe “in the hour of darkness” ;
– the port operations room;
– the “Rift” room;
– the presentation of D-Day;
– the Battle of Normandy.

After or before visiting the museum, discover the ruins of the artificial harbor and the monuments near the site.
