  • We went to visit the Juno Beach Center. Great welcome by young Canadians. The Centre is focused on Canada at the heart of the second world war. We were almost the only ones to visit the Museum (off season on weekdays).

  • It is one amazing place to go it makes me cry every time I go and I just love it thank you so much 🇫🇷🇧🇪🇨🇦🇺🇸
  • I was so underwhelmed by what I saw when I visited the museum and beach when I was there in April 2013. They hardly had anything worth looking at. Very very disappointed with lack of artifacts. I followed the Canadian battles that day in April 2013 from Juno Beach all the way to Caen. There was a nicer museum in Caen.
  • A must for every Canadian to visit! It will make you proud. Make sure to take the time to visit and pay tribute to the men who made your freedom what it is today. If you don't, be very ashamed.
  • An unforgettable experience for adults and children.
  • Pretty, but not much left here to commemorate what happened there.
