About D-DAY EXPERIENCE :
A major objective for the Allies, the taking of Carentan was crucial to ensure the linkup of the troops landing on Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. This mission was assigned to the paratroopers of the 101st US Airborne Division, who would soon face their German counterparts, the fearsome Fallschirmjäger – this was the clash of the paratroops. Located in Saint-Côme-du-Mont, whose capture was a necessary precondition for the liberation of Carentan, D-Day Experience is the only museum to offer a double perspective of the events.
Learn about the preparations for the jump over Normandy and attend Lt. Col. Wolverton’s briefing prior to boarding a genuine C-47 converted into a unique flight simulator – now you’re about to relive the crossing of the English Channel. Thanks to a modern and immersive museography, which will offer a new exhibit of more than 5,300 square-feet from June 2019, follow the footsteps of the American paratroopers from D-Day to the liberation of Carentan on June 12, 1944.
Then discover the historic house located at the so-called ‘Dead Man’s Corner’ – a place requisitioned by the Fallschirmjäger on D-Day and subsequently used as a command post and first aid post for a couple of days, until it was captured by the Americans.
From June 2019 onwards, to better understand the stakes and view the confrontation in the wider context of the invasion and the ensuing Battle of Normandy, the 3D film D-Day Normandy 1944 will be shown on an IMAX screen to offer an unprecedented visual and audio experience… Two museums, a flight simulator and an IMAX movie theater – D-Day Experience : don’t learn History, experience it!
