Airborne Museum, Freedom from the sky
The town of Sainte-Mère-Eglise was made famous by the parachutist John Steele who had the misfortune of clinging to the church bell tower with his parachute. His story is told in the famous film “The Longest Day”.
The Airborne Museum is composed of four buildings, each of which houses one or two aircraft and an impressive collection of WWII artefacts such as vehicles, weapons, everyday objects, uniforms, etc. When visiting this museum, it is impossible not to be touched by the fate of these young men who came to Europe to regain Peace.
The museum emphasizes immersion so you can board a real Waco glider, unique in France or a C-47 aircraft as the troops of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions could do from June 6, 1944.
