Nothing can match learning about the Normandy landings as you visit the very places where these events unfolded and hear the stories of those who fought there. The story of D-Day and the Allied invasion of Normandy have been at the heart of The National WWII Museum’s mission since they opened their doors as The National D-Day Museum on June 6, 2000, the 56th Anniversary of D-Day. The foundation of this institution started with the telling of the American experience on D-Day, and this Normandy travel program is still held in special regard – and is considered to be the very best battlefield tour on the market. Drawing on the historical expertise and extensive archival collection, the Museum’s D-Day tour takes visitors back to June 6, 1944, through a memorable journey from Pegasus Bridge and Sainte-Mère-Église to Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc. Along the way, you’ll learn the timeless stories of those who sacrificed everything to pull-off the largest amphibious attack in history, and ultimately secured the freedom we enjoy today. Led by local battlefield guides who are experts in the field, this tour offers an exclusive experience that incorporates pieces from the Museum’s oral history and artifact collections into presentations that truly bring history to life. After planning dozens of trips to Normandy over the years, the Museum added new locations and experiences, forged new friendships and partnerships, and uncovered countless untold stories of those who fought to liberate Europe. We are pleased to offer D-Day: The Invasion of Normandy and Liberation of France, to honor those who fought for our freedom.

A two-night pre-tour in Bayeux is also available.
