Located at a short distance from the famous "Omaha Beach", on the D514 facing the roundabout that provides access to the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-mer. Overlord Museum chronicles the period of the Allied landing until the liberation of Paris, but also gives short information on the war years before that.

The collection was collected by Michel Leloup (1929-2011), who was both a witness to the conflict and involved in the reconstruction of Normandy.

Permanent collections.
The Leloup collection has been built up over half a century of research, salvage and purchases of historic pieces from the Normandy battlefields. Everything from a reconnaissance plane, V1 flying bomb, more than 10 armoured fighting vehicles, 30 soft skin vehicles, artillery pieces, poster, signs, documents and personal objects all bearing witness to the terrible fighting in 1944.
In the museum are Sherman tanks, but also a Panzer V Panther and a Panzer IV.

This museum was as of 1987 based in Falaise, but was opened on the 5th of June 2013 on this location.
