Arromanches 360 Museum

The Arromanches 360 cinema sits atop the heights of the same name, providing visitors with the chance to experience the Battle of Normandy as if they were really there. This was where the Allies defeated the German army in 1944, making it an important site in the Normandy military campaign.

This seaside village was host to an artificial port made of 71 boxes, 500 meters of docks and 8 floating roadways, a unique work in the history of mankind.

The circular cinema dominates the remains of the artificial harbor and immerses the viewer in the operations that it documents.
