Relive the harrowing story of the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions and see a Douglas C-47 as well as a Waco Glider. The exhibits, presentations, and items housed in this parachute-shaped museum fill in many of the missing pieces to just how the Allied forces battled their way to victory. While in Sainte-Mère-Église, don't forget to look for what appears to be a parachute wrapped around one of the spires of the church—a memorial to American paratrooper John Steele, caught there for two hours before being captured by the Germans. The museum’s exhibitions include multimedia presentations of the landings, an C-47 aircraft, and interactive/augmented reality guides. Flexible entrance tickets and the self-guided tours let you explore at your own pace.
