From June 2019 until November 2020 the Utah Beach D-day Museum presents the ‘Utah Beach, then and now’ temporary exhibition.
Photos taken between Utah Beach and Sainte-Marie-du-Mont at the time of landing are superimposed on current views; a way of projecting the visitor into the past.
These open books on our History will be unveiled through a chronological journey, and will allow visitors to understand History in an immersive way, from Utah Beach to Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.
The Utah Beach Landings Museum is situated on the site of a former German strongpoint that was crushed by the U.S. assault force on Utah Beach in the morning of D-Day, 6 June 1944. Among a lot of war related items, this museum features a rare Martin B 26 ‘Marauder’, an American medium-size bomber.
Utah Beach was the codename of D-Day’s westernmost landing beach. Here the U.S. 4th Infantry Division came ashore. The Utah Beach landing was quite successful, partially thanks to the Airborne troops who prevented any significant counterattacks against the landing area.
