Pegasus Bridge




Pegasus Bridge Museum in Normandy is a museum dedicated to the history and the events that took place during the D-Day landings of World War II. The museum is located in the same spot where British troops, led by Major John Howard, captured the bridge at Benouville, France on the night of June 5-6, 1944. This daring mission became known as the Battle of Pegasus Bridge, and the bridge itself was renamed Pegasus Bridge after the operation.

The museum is built on the actual site of the bridge, and it features a full-scale replica of the original bridge. Inside the museum, visitors can find a variety of artifacts from the Battle of Pegasus Bridge, including original weapons, uniforms, and documents. The museum also features a variety of interactive exhibits that give visitors an immersive experience of the mission.
