Seventy-five years ago on June 6, 1944, D-Day became a defining moment of the 20th century when the Western allies launched a massive invasion on the beaches of Normandy, France, to free Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. Join The Mariners’ Museum as it commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Interpreters will share stories of the Normandy invasion, and the programs aim to convey the heroism and courage of those who fought, lived, and died during “the longest day” in US history.
All activities FREE with $1 admission
D-Day remains a prominent event in U.S. and world history. More than just a stroll down memory lane, The Mariners’ Museum will recognize the bravery and sacrifices of all who fought that day for liberation and the end of Germany’s tyranny.
