Omaha Beach Memorial Museum

D-Day and Battle of Normandy museums

A few meters from Omaha Beach, scene of furious fighting fought by American soldiers on June 6, 1944, the Omaha Beach Memorial Museum brings together an impressive collection of remnants of battles and period equipment, as well as rare documents that help to better understand the historical facts minutes after minutes.

Among the vestiges, beach obstacles and landing craft found after the fighting are exposed, and scenography can identify the equipment worn by the US and German military, both during the fighting in Omaha Beach than during the assault on Pointe du Hoc. Note on the museum’s car park: the presence of an amphibious Sherman tank that participated in the D-Day assault, as well as a US 155 mm Long Tom gun.
