Juno Beach Centre, Courseulles-sur-Mer

4.5
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Courseulles-sur-Mer
Juno Beach Centre presents Canada’s role in military operations and the war effort on the home front in World War II. Film, audio, and displays bring pre-war and wartime Canada alive, as well as cover the fighting experiences. At the front of the center, Juno Park has walkways with interpretation panels, a preserved German bunker, and a path leading to the beach. There is little development here, so nothing interrupts your contemplation of beach and ocean. Imagine the sands littered with mines-on-sticks, spiky metal “hedgehogs,” barbed wire, and other barbarisms intended to destroy landing craft and the 14,000 Canadian soldiers that fought in this area.

  • Juno beach, the Canadian... a page of this story we know less well! This museum allows us to always learn a little more. The friendly staff.

  • Museum quality, the visit is fluid and pleasant; everything is exposed with care and respect, testimonials, items offered or lent, a route for children is offered with search for clues, for a playful discovery we are greeted (in March) by Gabriel, who delights us with his Canadian accent, happiness we had a wonderful time at the Juno Beach centre and we share this historical testimony with Canadian of Vimy memorial park, in the heights of France

  • Great place to visit and easy to walk around inside and on the beach. Went with my 2 grown up sons and they are usually easily bored but not here.
  • I was filled with a sense of pride, sorrow and humility as I stood in the middle of the beach where so many people gave their lives in sacrifice for our freedom.
  • Fantastic museum staff were lovely and so helpfull .well worth a visit
  • The place to visit if you are in to WWII intrested..right on the Junobeach close to Caen
  • So cool here. I am very happy they have history available to the public. The bunkers are neat and the exhibit is very informational. The staff were warm and friendly and spoke English.
