D-Day Omaha Museum
D-Day and Battle of Normandy museums
The D-Day Omaha Museum (located a few hundred meters from Omaha Beach) opens its doors in 1999, exhibiting the personal collection of Michel Brissard, passionate about the history of the Normandy landings for more than fifty years. The building that today houses the uniforms, armaments and other remains of the fighting of June 6, 1944 during the assault on Omaha Beach, was originally installed by the Americans in the immediate vicinity of the beach of Vierville-sur-Mer: used as a field hospital, it later served as communal hall after the war.
This private museum is now home to many objects and military vehicles, staged in a condensed history that teems with exciting details. The visit is not limited to the interior of the building: the collector’s items as well as the footbridges of the artificial port of Omaha are visible on the outside also deserve to stop there to better understand the course of the landing of Normandy.
