Few kilometres from Bayeux, in the heart of the Gold Beach landing sector (The British troops sector), we can still observe the remains of the Mulberry B artificial harbour, built in 1944. Since April 2023, behind large windows facing the sea, the new museum of Arromanches deploys a modernized scenography at the service of its collections linked to the history of D-Dday, with this particularity of the museum since its origin: the presentation of the construction of the artificial port.
More immersive, the tour is now audio-guided (10 languages are available) and is also suitable for young audiences with a speech accessible to 6-12 year olds. A new 8-minute film has been produced to immerse visitors in the historical context developed throughout the visit, from the German occupation of Arromanches to the D-Day assault on June 6, 1944. And for the nostalgic from the old museum, the famous 1956 model, showing the use of the artificial port, is still there!
See you in 2024 for the opening of the museum’s roof terrace, which will offer a breathtaking view of the sea, on the remains of the artificial port.
