Young Canadians take you round the first part of the museum which is outside in the bunkers of the Atlantic Wall. They are very knowledgeable and our guide added a bit of humour while keeping the seriousness of the visit. More countries should do the same with the younger generation. The indoor section is full of interesting items, well worth... More

The museum starts on the outside of the building with monuments containing names of all the Canadians that died in the Normandy campaign. The museum focuses on the events of Normandy but also gives background to the war, an overview of Canadian geography, contributions in other theatres of WWII, contributions made by Canadians at home and life after the war....

Incredible experience, and a great little museum! Juno beach was the main beach the Canadian troops attacked on D-day of 1944 and this museum and beach depict that very well. There are a couple bunkers on the beach you can walk through as well. Absolutely must visit if you have the chance, even if you're not Canadian you can appreciate... More

As Canadians, touring Juno Beach was very emotional. Walking along the beaches, touring the bunker and seeing the museum brought history to life. We followed this by a visit to the Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery where my father was able to locate someone he knew who lost his life in France. No one left with a dry eye. Definitely worth...

We visited as a part of the 11-day Beyond Band of Brothers tour. This museum is smaller than some in Normandy, but very well done with many different themes to the exhibits. I thought the movie was the most touching of those we saw in the Normandy area. If possible, get a tour with one of the young Canadians on... More

This centre is a mine of information about Canada before, during and after the WW2, as well as being a nature reserve with plenty to understand and learn about the local fauna and flora. It has great views on the beaches as well as being very well presented in terms of history and artifacts from the war. The final room... More

Juno Beach is where Canadian troops landed on D-Day & this center tells their story very well. Unless you are Canadian you probably know little of what happened here on D-Day. Having spent 41 years in the US Army & having a passion for military history I was amazed at what little I knew of what the Canadian military did... More

As a Canadian visiting Juno Beach it is hard to describe the emotions that flood you as walk on the same beach that so many lost their lives on while liberating France. Visiting the centre is a must and new bunkers and pill boxes in 2014 were uncovered and donations are required to help include them into the centre. The... More
