German Beach Obstacles - D-Day
On 24 April 2008, the Museum received three German beach obstacles (2 concrete, 1 metal) that were used to impede the Allies on D-Day, 6 June 1944. The obstacles are not permanent exhibits but are being stored for the Center of Military History. Click here for a photograph of the container with all three obstacles waiting to be unloaded.
