Atlantikwall - Museé de la Batterie de Crisbecq

Visit the largest coastal artillery battery on Utah-Beach, with its 21 pillboxes linked by over a kilometre of trenches covering a total area of 4 hectares. You will get a genuine feel for the battery, via the diorama show which takes you into the rest rooms, the food and equipment stores, the ammunition chambers and the sick rooms - all restored to their original state.
The 'Museum de la Batterie de Crisbecq' (Crisbeq gun battery museum) is located near the Route des Manoirs in Saint-Marcouf-de-L'Isle.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
