If you are on the way please stop by the museum. Is really incredible place. Emotion and feelings are surrounding all the park and the inside spots. Detailed and great visits, well taken care. Seems to be in the USA and perfectly felt the history.

Artifacts from Omaha Beach - those of the Germans, Americans, British, and French. Also, a nice video at the end of the museum.

We visited the Omaha Beach Memorial Museum in Monday. It was very quiet as was the beach because it was early October and out of season. The exhibits, primarily mannequins in a variety of uniforms, are well presented and maintained. There is also a film...More
