The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major restrictions worldwide and has severely affected cultural tourism. Despite the dire situation, French people in Normandy did not lose their spirits but instead used the time available and the lack of visitors as an opportunity to renew several historic sites and museums. We will look at two of those sites today, both located on Gold Beach.
The Landing Museum (Musée du Débarquement) in the small town of Arromanches is dedicated mainly to the story behind the famous Mulberry artificial harbors. One of these harbors, named after Winston Churchill, was erected here and the remains of the harbor can still be found on the beach.
