The National D-Day Museum is designated by Congress as "America's National World War II Museum."
It interprets the American experience during the World War II years and celebrates the American spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who won World War II and promotes the exploration and expression of these values by future generations.
From an overview of World War II's economic and political roots to the build-up and military mobilization of Allied Forces in the 17 D-Days around the world.
The 70,500-square-foot Museum presents a collection of personal stories, preserves important materials for research and scholarship, and inspires future generations to learn life lessons -- teamwork, the value of democracy, unsung bravery -- from the most complex military operations ever staged.
