The museum is located next to the beach in Arromanches overlooking the remains of the Mulberry Harbour which allowed the Allies to land heavy equipment and supplies in Normandy following the initial invasion. At its busiest peak the port was unloading more than 18,000 tons of supplies each day.
The museum provides a chronological history of the artificial harbours from their design through to their construction and operation using dioramas, models and films.
