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

Thos works ad a memorial but doesn't offer much more than a bit of familiarization with the era. Worth a peek and to honor those who fought but don't expect too much.

Visited Juno Beach Centre with a friend. It really brought home what the Canadian and other allied forces went through on D Day. Thought provoking museum. Must watch the film at the end of the visit called "Walking in their footstep" you will find it difficult not to shed a tear.

From beginning to end this centre reminds us of the human side of war. Not only do you get a soldier's perspective, but also a look at the effect war has on civilians. Well worth the trip and the cost of admission, we were here as part of a WWI and WWII Canadian War Memorial tour, so it was included... More

I went to visit Juno 5yrs ago and happened to be passing by again and as a Canadian and out of respect i thought i should stop by again. A few things have changed but not much. Its still a great place to learn about the Canadians involvement and the sacrifices our country made to help another in desperate need.... More

This was a very informative site. It is quite a simple area at the beach with some equipment mounted there so you have a perspective of what these men were working with. It was a humbling experience. The indoor museum is worth visiting too, and the young Canadians that work here are very helpful.
