Owner description: The Airborne Museum, situated in the square of Sainte-Mere-Eglise, a few miles from D-Day landing beaches, facing the church where John Steele famously was caught, relates the heroic adventure of paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Division. Through a spectacular museography, the Airborne Museum takes you through the D-Day alongside American paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Division. From the invasion preparations in England through the battles for liberation, meet the Airborne troops and accompany them on their journey to Victory.

“Musee Airborne”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

This museum was one of the best of the several that we visited while in Normandy. The films shown in the museum were extremely informative.

Well worth a stop. Artifacts are well cared for in a well-tended setting, right across from the main square.

“Authentic”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The museum is very authentic. Many uniforms, memorabilia to view. Airplanes, gliders, etc. If you like WWII, this is the place to be.

“Nice museum”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Although small the amount of artifacts and equipment they have on display was outstanding! The C47 and glider displays were incredible as I had never seen either of them before an other WWII sites.
