Elementary schools

Located in the heart of the historic site of Omaha Beach and only a few hundred meters from Colleville-sur-mer American Cemetery, the museum and its collection aim to transmit the duty of remembrance to adults as well as to younger generations. Welcoming school groups is therefore an integral part of our mission.
Through a tour retracing the origins of the D-Day Landings until the Liberation of Paris, students will discover scenes on a scale of 1:1, accompanied by sound and light effects, to allow a better understanding of the period.
