DEAD MAN’S CORNER

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.

The land outside the museums covers an area of 10 000sq where you can see various historical items such as the legendary 88mm German gun, beach obstacles including a Czech hedgehog, the one of the five steel gates still remaining in the world to date, the Stuart tank and also the Airborne Wall Memorial, the monument honoring the airborne troops and crew members of the C-47.

Chers visiteurs,

Comme vous l’avez probablement entendu le 12 juillet dernier, le gouvernement français vient de prendre de nouvelles mesures obligatoires à l’encontre des lieux de visites suite à la reprise de l’épidémie. Par conséquent, depuis le 21 juillet, nous sommes dans l’obligation de demander à tout visiteur de 18 ans et plus son Pass Sanitaire (ou un test PCR négatif de moins de 48h), afin de l’autoriser à entrer dans notre établissement. Tout ceci est bien évidemment indépendant de notre volonté, mais la conjoncture économique de ces derniers mois autant que la perspective d’une amende de 1500 € et d’une fermeture administrative de notre établissement nous obligent à suivre ces nouvelles règles. Le port du masque reste obligatoire pendant toute la visite, ainsi que dans notre salle de cinéma. Malgré tout, nous espérons vous voir très nombreux pendant cette période estivale. D’ici là, prenez soin de vous.

La Direction.

 


 

Dear visitors,

Considering the current sanitary context, the French Government has announced a new series of sanitary measures on July 12, 2021, which apply to cultural venues, including museums. Consequently, since July 21, 2021, every visitor aged 18 and over has been required to provide a Sanitary Pass (or a 48-hour negative PCR test) to be allowed to enter our facilities. Please note that these constraints are due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control; however, the unfavorable economic climate, as well as the €1,500 fine and forced closure incurred, compel us to comply with the present rules and regulations. Besides, wearing a face mask will remain mandatory in both the museum and the movie theater until further notice. Nevertheless, we look forward to seeing many of you during the summer period. In the meantime, take care!

D-Day Experience.
