The Basics

You’ll discover a robust collection of wartime artifacts at Dead Man’s Corner Museum, the former headquarters of German paratroopers. Most travelers pair a visit to Dead Man’s Corner with stops at other D-Day Experience exhibits, since one admission ticket gives you access to all the attractions.

To save time at the entrance, book your ticket online in advance. For deeper insight, opt for a private tour that visits several notable World War II sites, such as Utah Beach and Omaha Beach.

Experience D-Day on the Flight Simulator

If you’re inspired to step into the shoes of American paratroopers, take a ride on the Dead Man’s Corner Museum flight simulator—just across the grounds of the D-Day Experience. Board the plane, and strap in to the converted C-47 aircraft. Be prepared for a bumpy ride across the Channel, and experience a bit of what it was like to storm the beaches of Normandy.
