Utah Beach was the code name for one of the 5 sectors, and most successful, of the allied invasion. The museum is a stark reminder of sacrifice and success. Seeing the artifacts, the amphibious tanks, personal stories, and watching the movie brought me to tears. The monuments erected outside seem sacred. Though beautifully and proudly erected in their splendor they... More

There is so much to see here! I don't think I've ever seen so many artifacts & true to life stories in a museum before. It gets that right completely: there are facts & the human condition. The stories or things you wish your relatives that fought in WWll shared with you. This museum is a must for anyone interested... More

This is quite possibly one of the best museums about the Normandy landings in existence. It's full of facts, true stories, bios and loaded with original artifacts. You can read about men who were instrumental in the operations, their stories, see maps of military operations, even visit a briefing room. You can take some snaps next to actual WW2 vehicles...

Takes a look at the D-Day landings from the side of the Germans as well as the allies. Well preserved items from the era and moving stories from those who were there. A must visit if you are in the area.

There are a lot of exhibits with a ton of military equipment that tell the story of the landings on Utah Beach. There is also an overview movie that gives a lot of background on the landings that happened here. The beach is directly behind the museum & there are other outdoor monuments to see. The parking is free &... More

This now-empty beach once was once filled with land-mines, miles of barbed wire and metal barricades. The Utah Beach museum details in its exhibits--tanks, airplanes, pieces of landing bridges, landing boats, and tons of military gear--and films, how important this beach was to enable the eventual liberation of France. Troops from here were able to take the port of Cherbourg... More

We should have actually dedicated way more time to this museum, its very well put together, and full of material from that time. Make time to watch the "movie" it gives you an amazing overview of the scenario.

We visited this museum on October 17th. There are several places next to the road leading to the museum where you can park your car for free. The museum gives a discount for active military. There is a lot to see and read, some parts are interactive.If you want to take pictures without people in front you will have to... More

What a fantastically well laid out and informative, historical and very sensory record of that fateful day in history when the allies started to force the oppressors from France. The artefacts, the information the layout all help the visitor to understand why Utah was such an important place and why we must continue to remember.
