Location and info
Airborne Museum, 14 Rue Eisenhower, 50480 Sainte-Mere-Eglise
In the heart of the famous town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise – the spot where US paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne landed on D-Day.
Amazing museum with three main buildings and thousands of exhibits, this is one of the must-visit museums for anyone visiting Normandy.
The whole place tells the incredible stories of heroism of the men who dropped from the sky on D-Day, but also the people of the town and their sacrifices too. The museum is built on the site where all the action happened!
The newly refurbished C47 hangar at the museum is worth the entry fee alone - credit to the team for the new displays. There’s so much more to see, read, and listen to that you could spend a whole day in there!
The Operation Neptune building is packed with stunning exhibits and allows you to get up close with history with archive film material enhancing your visit and understanding of this location during the war years.
At the entrance you can see the carefully restored M4A4 Sherman tank ‘Channel Blues’ with its 75mm gun.
Next door is a great cafe for a spot of lunch too. Five stars for everything!
