An innovative attraction...

Created in 2005, D-Day Experience originally consisted of Dead Man’s Corner Museum and the Paratrooper shop. Both founders, Emmanuel Allain and Michel De Trez specialize in airborne troops. They are recognized authors and passionate researchers of the Second World War who always had for objective to develop their own site. In 2015, 10 years after the opening of the first museum, the inauguration of the extension hosting a quite unique attraction took place: a high-tech flight simulator aboard an authentic C-47 aircraft.
D-Day Experience is also a collection of artifacts of an extreme rarity: indeed, every object featured is nominative and precisely identified. It’s thanks to the story of all these men that the museum takes you back to 1944 in the footsteps of Colonel Wolverton and his brothers in arms.

DEAD MAN’S CORNER MUSEUM

The house in which is established the museum is a historical place. It was the headquarters of the famous German paratroopers of the 6th Regiment. This building was the subject of a tug of war opposing the men of the 101st Airborne Division to the fearsome “Green Devils”. Go back to 1944 as you visit this restored house as the exact state as when the Germans occupied it.
