Juno Beach Centre, Courseulles-sur-Mer

#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.

  • Every single Canadian needs to go and check out the Juno Beach centre. The staff are so knowledgable and helpful. They are all students from Canada and you can see the pride they have in Canada as there guide you through the centre and around the grounds. You'll definitely walk away as a proud Canadian.
  • Excellent museum honoring Canadian forces that fought and died in Normandy. Staff are Canadian and are super friendly (they’re Canadian!). My son and I really enjoyed it. I met a nice Canadian on a short business visit to the area at the American Cemetery at Omaha. He mentioned he had limited time and I emphasized he visit here as all Canadians should!
