Located in the Parc Naturel Régional des Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin, the "Madeleine" beach went into history a Tuesday of June 1944.
67 years after, the Utah Beach Landing Museum invites you to walk along paths of our liberators.
The Utah Beach museum was created in 1962 by Michel de Vallavieille, mayor of Sainte Marie du Mont from 1949 to 1991. He spent a lot of his time and his energy in creating and maintaining this museum to preserve the memory of those who landed on UTAH BEACH. The museum opened inside a old German bunker known under code name WN5. It is today the historical and symbolic center of the museum.
The site of Utah Beach is in permanent evolution to thank and pay tribute to all the men who gave or risked their life for our freedom.
