Objects tell their stories

The Memorial Museum of the Battle of Normandy shows visitors the key phases of the conflict and the day by day advances of the forces involved.

Within the museum’s collections, objects and the way they were used by the different combatants during the battle can often serve as typical illustrations of the events being recounted. The equipment displayed can also be unique and tell a specific story.
