Musee du Débarquement Utah Beach Review

In La Madeleine, inspect the sleek, recently expanded Musee du Débarquement Utah Beach (Utah Beach Landing Museum) —a stunning facility, located right on the beach head, where exhibits include vintage aircraft and a W5 Utah scale model detailing the German defenses. Continue north to the Dunes de Varreville, where you'll find a monument to French hero General Leclerc, who landed here. Offshore you can see the fortified Iles St-Marcouf. Carry on to Quinéville, at the far end of Utah Beach, to visit the Memorial de la Liberte at 18 Ave. de la Plage (02–33–95–95–95, www.memorial-quineville.com): open daily from April to September, this small museum evokes life during the German Occupation (€6.50).
