[table="width: 100%"] [tr] [td]For anybody planning a visit, Arramanches is now a popular tourist destination on the Normandy coast, and just like so many other Normandy towns and villages they too have their Sherman tank as a memorial to the D-Day invasion. [/td] [td] [/td] [/tr] [tr] [td]Unlike those other towns, with the exceptions of Caen and Bayeux, they also have an extremely comprehensive museum with a large diorama of the mulberry harbour which was built there following the invasion. Outside the museum, on the roadway down to the beach there is also a piece of the pontoon roadway and on the beach some of the huge concrete caissons are still visible, although they are now half buried by the sand and some are still in their positions out in the sea.

The D-Day museum at Bayeux is another interesting visit; you’ll find it almost directly opposite the British War Cemetery. The pictures are from Google Earth.
