The exhibition “Utah Beach, Then and Now / Hier et Aujourd’hui” will be extended until the end of 2021.
Initially scheduled until November 30, 2020, the current situation does not allow the museum to propose new exhibitions for the moment. Therefore it was decided to extend the exhibition presenting the evolution of the landscape from a historical point of view for another year.
THE EXHIBITION UTAH BEACH, YESTERDAY AND TODAY, WHAT IS IT?
Photographs taken between Utah Beach and Sainte-Marie-du-Mont at the time of the landings are superimposed on the current views; a way of projecting the visitor into History.
These open books on the past will be unveiled through a chronological tour, and will allow visitors to understand History in an immersive way, from Utah Beach to Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.
September 19 and 20, 2020 at 2pm
