An outstanding memorial to our Canadian troops and a reminder for us to be thankful for our freedom. Juno hires young knowledgeable, energetic and engaging guides, something our teenage boys appreciated during our visit. The film at the end brought tears to our eyes. Everyone...More

Maybe it was museum fatigue, but this museum didn’t offer as much as expected. There was too much Canadian history before the war. The compulsory entrance video was poor and far too hot. It had ended before it got going. The video at the end...More

Hi Chowso, I am sorry you didn't find our museum to your liking. The content of the museum is meant to reflect Canada's participation in the Second World War as a whole, to give a full picture understanding. The Juno Beach Centre was founded by...More

The Juno Beach Centre is one of the best exhibits we have ever seen. Staffed by Canadians, everyone we met was very knowledgeable and helpful. Unfortunately our timing did not coordinate with taking the tour, however it was absolutely worth going to see the exhibits...More

Though we were scheduled to go on a tour, the SNCF rotating strike put an end to that. We did rent a car in Paris and wound up at Juno Beach to see the Canadian D Day landing site. Very impressive, still some installations on...More

Wasn't sure what to expect, and wondered if it would be boring for our six-year old grandson. But it was a great mix of things to see and read out of doors, plus interactive displays and testimonies inside the museum with short, excellent documentary films....More

Most d days museums/ centers are 100% about the war. Juno is mix it with nature. The dunes and wildlife are very well presented. Add a general humbellness athmosphere and you get a better visit then in sword/UTAH

This can be done in one day but you will miss a lot. The drive is over 3 hours and you could see a lot in 4 to six hours. Plus you need time for lunch by the sea. It is unfortunate not to see the US and British beaches, but... More
