Museum in commemoration of WWII, with strange artifacts
One way to notice historical events is going to the Normandy landing beaches. One example is Arromanches. Not Omaha Beach, but not detract from the building of tourist things. This tiny coastal town has a museum of WWII, where we can find the basic pack guns, tanks, plaques, uniforms etc .... The tiny structure that houses the memories of one of the bloodiest wars contemporary history, brings a ton of artifacts and things from soldiers, and witnesses of the landing. There are also many representations of plasterboard that remind us how weird may be the tributes to the fallen and the facts that remain in the memory of those affected.
