The Airborne Museum, what is it ?
Come to the Airborne Museum and climb aboard a real aeroplane alongside American paratroopers and drop into Sainte-Mère-Eglise to liberate the town. Listen to the aeroplanes’ engines, the exploding bombs and the jumpmaster who gives the order to jump.
Feel the vibrations of the aircraft and the wind in your hair as you drop by parachute! Thanks to John the parachutist and Grandpa Albert you will find out about the history of Normandy Invasion whilst having a great time.
A tablet will be given to you for free at the entrance of the museum. Thanks to the HistoPad, you will discover even more while having fun: participate in a treasure hunt and find war relics hidden all over the museum, take a selfie in an American parachutist, nurse or soldier’s uniform. Are you ready to go back in time to 1944?
The Airborne Museum’s HistoPad will take you back 75 years to the very moment the Allies landed! Before your eyes, you will be able to see History replay: the German occupation in Normandy, the arrival of paratroopers in Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the landing of gliders, the creation of temporary hospitals, the major battles etc….
