Thanks to my new friends at Relais de la Plage (more on them soon, they are recommended), I was introduced to the Director of the new Overlord Museum between Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. Despite the fact that construction is being frantically finished so that they can have a very special opening on Wednesday, Jean Christophe Lefranc was kind enough to provide a tour so that you can get a sneak peak ahead of everyone.
Landscaping, cleaning, painting and other work was and is going on around the clock.
The museum starts with 1933 and the rise of Hitler. Without giving too much away, it moves into the Resistance, life under occupation, the Atlantic Wall, and then moves into D-Day. By the way, some of the exhibits do run, and there are some interesting plans being made around that fact.
