We were a bit "museumed out" when we arrived at Musee D-Day Omaha and so we didn't stay too long.
It has a wealth of D-Day artifacts to get your WWII teeth into. It's more of a collection than a structured museum.
Maybe next time we'll take some time to wander about some more. An admission fee is payable.
Like the British at Arromanches-les-Bains, the Americans also created a Mulberry (floating) port along the shores of Normandy to supply the commencing forces with everything they needed. However, this Mulberry port was destroyed in the first best autumn storm, after which the Arromanches Mulberry port became vital for the allied forces. Along the provincial road leading away from the beach at Vierville-sur-Mer, one finds large parts of the American port, as well as a monument for the 6th Engineering Special Brigade, that built it.
On a sunny summerday one can also just come here for some beach activities, such as sunbathing, swimming or - for the kids - playing with the sand by building castles and canals. The beach is - even at high tide - quite wide and offers more then enough space for the beach lovers in the neighbourhood, as well as for the visitors from foreign countries. Swimming deep into the sea is prohibited, because of left over warcraft and scrap metal scattered over the sea's floor.
Access to this site can be difficult. The area is still like it was deserted after the war. Be careful... but do not hesitate to visit the place
