“Peaceful Utah Beach, Normandy France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2009

Today, it's difficult to imagine Utah Beach the way it must have been on June 6, 1944 during the D-Day Invasion of France. The beach is clean, quiet and beautiful. There are several monuments honoring the men who fought their way onto the beach, as well as a good museum. You will need at least four hours to explore everything thoroughly, possibly longer if it is crowded. We visited in early October so it was fairly empty. We visited St. Mere-Eglise in the morning, then stopped at the Iron Mike Statue outside of town and on to Utah Beach. It was a full day and each place was well worth visiting, remembering, and paying our respects.

“Museum at Utah Beach very educational”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2007

The Utah Beach Landing Museum (Musée du Débarquement in French) sits at the location of the U.S. landing on 6 June 1944 during the Allied invasion of Normandy. The museum’s exhibit of photographs, maps, and dioramas explain the invasion — from planning stages and full operation to ultimate success — and the many artifacts bring a human scale to this history. (There’s an informative film, too.) Outside the museum, there’s more to see: monuments, military vehicles, beach obstacles, and a few rusting relics in the water. Very poignant are the wide swathes of open beach and the dunes, so peaceful now…. This museum has much to offer visitors.
