Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy back on June 6, 1944, and this museum continues to bring this decisive moment to life. Watch Beyond All Boundaries, a 4D film that takes viewers to the frontlines and the home front of WWII, produced and narrated by Tom Hanks with special effects that include vibrating seats and falling “snow.” Also be sure to visit the newest pavilion, Campaigns of Courage, a 32,000-square-foot campus that showcases how the war was won in two expansive permanent exhibitions: Road to Berlin: European Theater Galleries and Road to Tokyo: Pacific Theater Galleries.
