Built on the very beach where the first American troops landed on June 6, 1944, the Utah Beach Museum recounts the story of D-Day in 10 sequences, from the preparation of the landing, to the final outcome and success. This comprehensive chronological journey immerses visitors in the history of the landing through a rich collection of objects, vehicles, materials, and oral histories.
The museum’s star is an authentic B 26 medium bomber plane, which is exposed in the hall designed for him.
With the film “VICTORY IN THE SAND”, relive the epic experience of American soldiers committed in this decisive battle, the biggest amphibian operation of all the military history. With moving testimonies of veterans, you will take the measure of their sacrifice which freed in Europe.
