I had no idea about the port that the allies built to support the D-Day invasion. It was a modern miracle and even unbelievable from today's standpoint. Without this quickly made port the allies would not have been able to sustain the victory won on D-Day. It allowed supplies to come in day after day to support the troops. The... More

This museum explains how the artificial harbour was constructed and the vital part it played in the D Day landings. It is built on the site of the artificial harbour, and the remains of the Mulberry harbour are still visible today. Inside the museum there are working models, museum collections and a film with archive footage.

This museum is in the town & there are places to eat & shop across the street. There are few places to park next to the... More

We did not go in this museum but wanted to give a great review. While walking back from the remains on the beach we got to see their vehicles outside. Also a bridge that was used. The woman cleaning the steps was so friendly. Said hello and asked us how we were and to have a great day. Just very... More

I thought I knew a lot about the Normandy Invasion but frankly, I had no idea of the artificial Mulberry Harbor which was created by the British almost overnight to support the D Day invasion. The museum does a good job of explaining in an obsolete, yet effective way, how the harbor was built. Its well worth an hour of... More

Very interesting museum commemorating the D-Day landings! Well worth visiting if in the area! Must-see! Some very interesting WWII items from WWII on display. A video or two included in the museum. You'll find out how the allies were able to offload their military supplies/weapons, vehicles, etc by building a portable breakwater and then draggin them to this area to... More
