Fodor's Review

In La Madeleine, inspect the sleek Musee du Débarquement Utah Beach (Utah Beach Landing Museum)—a stunning facility, located right on the beachhead, 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 avenue 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).
