Utah beach landing museum

Utah beach landing museum

At the dawn of June 6, 1944 the beach of madeleine, renamed by de code name “Utah Beach”, saw the arrival of US troops for what remains the largest landing of troops ever made in history with 830 000 men and 725,000 tons of material.

Created in 1962, the museum has been enlarged several times thanks to the generosity of the descendants of D-Day fighters, including an authentic B26 Marauder bomber and two flight simulators designed to immerse visitors in the hell of this night.

Regularly the place of international commemorations, it was also in 2017 the place of arrival of the “tour de France” cycling stage “from Mont Saint Michel to Utah Beach”.

After visiting the museum visitors can not resist a pleasant walk on the sandy beach or a good swim. It was obviously quite different on June 6, 1944 when the U.S. soldiers were all heroes.

Finally, even if the articles about this beach and the museum speak little about it, the rise of the sea level due to the global warming is very visible for the inhabitants. The fields are regularly nibbled by the waves.
