Juno Beach Centre and Park

The Juno Beach Centre museum is about the role of the Canadians in France, especially during D-Day and helps you to gain understanding of how these events have been ingrained into the collective memory of Canadians.

 

Located on the very beach where Canadian troops landed on June 6, 1944, between Arromanches and Ouistreham, the Juno Beach Centre is an ideal location to discover Canada’s participation in the military operations of the Second World War as well as the efforts made on the home front. The Juno Beach Centre features a permanent exhibition on Canada’s experience throughout the campaigns of the Second World War and the contribution on the home front. Visitors may follow a guided tour of Juno Park to discover bunkers and tunnels leading to a German command post on site in 1944. 

Starting in February 2017, the temporary exhibition “From Vimy to Juno: Remembering Canadians in France” allows visitors to gain understanding of how these events have been ingrained into the collective memory of Canadians. How did Canadians commemorate their fallen soldiers? How did the French play a role in preserving this memory?
