Big Red 1 Assault Museum


Location and info

Big Red 1 Assault Museum, Hameau Le Bray D-514, 14710 Colleville-sur-Mer

Located next to the D514 road through Colleville-sur-Mer near the American Normandy Cemetery. Plenty of car parking outside.

A small, family-run museum solely dedicated to the Big Red 1 - the US 1st Infantry who landed on the nearby Omaha Beach on D-Day June 6, 1944. The items inside are all authentic and there are plenty of historical stories to go with them. The owner is very passionate about his collection and extremely knowledgeable.
Outside you can get up close to a Belgian Gate' - one of the most-used beach obstacles which stood in the way of the landing forces.
We love this museum and would urge everyone to visit and support the work being done here.
