Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy (Musée Mémorial de la Bataille de Normandie) Tours and Activities

The Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy (Musée Mémorial de la Bataille de Normandie), located next to a military cemetery in historic Bayeux, retraces the military and human story of the Battle of Normandy. It is entirely dedicated to the different strategies deployed by the Allies before the infamous D-Day landings as well as the battle itself, which occurred between June 7 and Aug. 29, 1944. Topics covered in the 2,000-square-meter space are varied and extensive; they include the Mulberry Harbour, the role of General de Gaulle, Cherbourg; the specific role of the air force, and the Battle of the Hedgerows. The museum features many artifacts including weapons, military maps, 25 minutes of film archives, hundreds of photographs, uniforms, two massive tanks and a diorama evoking the decisive struggle in the Falaise pocket. The museum also depicts the less recognized aspects of the military campaign, like daily logistics, engineering local operations, feeding the troops and caring for the wounded, for example.
