“Great displays and movie about Utah beach landing”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This is an excellent museum about the Utah beach landings. Be sure and watch the film, it is very well done. Displays are very good both about German troops and American ones. Has a mint condition B-26 given by Lt.Gov Dewhurst from Texas and much info about his father, who was a pilot for the invasion.. lots of nice individual touches. Very moving letter from French pilot, thanking the Americans for what they had done. We felt this was one of the better museums, right at the beach and its a beautiful drive to it.

“Museum has had an upgrade.”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I last visited this museum several years ago. It tells the story of the American Army landings at Utah very well. They have upgraded the displays & presentation films and now extended the interior to include the landing craft display (previously outside the front entrance) and a bomber, housed in a viewing hall. All the equipment & vehicles are very well presented. Its also only a short cut outside to the beach head exit. It is another main key museum not to be missed on any landing beaches tour.

“Another Place from History”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Another interesting D-Day museum with some original equipment from the war, both in and outside the museum itself. It's adjacent to the actual beach, which now just looks like a beach from Long Island Sound somewhere with it's flat, sandy beach, and sand dunes. The location of Utah beach is quite a distance west of Omaha Beach so this one may be the one you leave out if time is an issue.

“Excellent museum - not to be missed”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We stopped here first on a 3 day tour of the D Day beaches & museums and were very impressed. It's very new and well laid out with some great exhibits particularly the vehicles and the bomber. Being able to look out of the large glass windows at Utah beach through some of the old defences just added to the whole impression.
