    What to Expect
    Visit: Airborne Museum, 14 rue Eisenhower, 50480 Sainte-Mere-Eglise France

    In the building "Operation Neptune",  prepare to live the parachuting of June 6, 1944! Embark at night in a real C-47 plane in England, then land on the place of Sainte-Mère-Eglise in the middle of the fighting and take part in the battles that followed. A 20-minute film recounts with emotion the life under German occupation and the liberation of Sainte-Mère-Église and the Cotentin region.

    New this year, you will be able to go back in time with an Histopad! Thanks to the Augmented Reality, interactivity and hyper-realistic graphics of the Histopad tablet, you will be transported to the heart of Normandy in 1944 and experience the highlights of the D-Day. Immersion guaranteed! To witness the German occupation, to attend the landing of gliders, to manipulate weapons and equipment to understand how it works, to meet the destinies that have marked History ... all this is now possible thanks to high technology of Histopad!
