Location and info
Overlord Museum, 60 Rue des Chemins de la Liberte, 14710 Colleville-sur-Mer
Near to the entrance to American Normandy Cemetery and behind Omaha Beach, you can't miss the Overlord Museum and its vehicles on the roundabout on the D514 road west of Colleville.
One of the original and most popular WW2 museums in Normandy, the recently expanded Overlord Museum chronicles the period of the Allied landing until the liberation of Paris.
The collection was collected by an owner who was both a witness to the conflict and involved in the reconstruction of Normandy.
Personal items from individual soldiers and armoured fighting vehicles from the six armies in Normandy are presented as a series of reconstructions showing over 35 vehicles, tanks and guns.
Outside you can get up close to a Sherman, M10 tank destroyer, M7 Priest self-propelled gun, a Sherman recovery vehicle, and an 88mm cannon. Loads of parking.
