Seeing as my father was a paratrooper, I thoroughly enjoyed this museum. There was an actual glider in one of the buildings that I was able to walk through. All of the exhibits were excellent!

Visited on Veterans Day 2017 and gained a thorough appreciation of the experience paratroopers faced during the invasion of Normandy. This is a must see historical attraction.

The museum is located in Sainte-Mere-Eglise. There is parking opposite the museum (free on Sundays). Opposite the museum is the church, where (if i recall correctly!) John Steele was the paratrooper who's parachute caught upon the church spire & there is a model set up...More
