Airborne Museum, Freedom from the sky!

Through its 4 buildings with modern, interactive and spectacular scenography, the museum guides you in the footsteps of the American paratroopers on D-Day.
At the Airborne Museum, you embark in a real Waco glider, unique in France in this state of reconstruction or in a C-47 plane as the paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st airborne divisions were able to do for the Battle of Normandy.

Also, you will have the sensation of jumping from a C-47 plane in full flight to land in the heart of the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, or of fighting in the flooded marshes during the Battle of La Fière or of getting lost in the Normandy bocage during the Battle of the Hedges…
