Merville Battery Museum

Place du 9e Bataillon

14810 MERVILLE-FRANCEVILLE-PLAGE

Priority objective of D-Day according to the Allied high command, the Battery of Merville was neutralized by the 9th Battalion of British Paratroopers.

On a preserved site of several hectares, by taking an educational trail, you can visit 6 bunkers converted into a museum. A mythical plane, the Douglas C-47 which took part in the landing is exhibited on the site and now has a beautiful hangar for its preservation.

In the main bunker, every 20 minutes, a sound and light show will immerse you in what was the hell of taking the Battery.

From now on, an audioguide is available to accompany you during your visit!
