As a teacher of Canadian history, it was incredible to experience everything. This hands-on display was great. I wish we could bring all students. We should have more museums like this in Canada. Visiting the cemeteries was especially moving.

It meant a lot to me. I have gained an understanding of what life was really like during WWII and the times before and after. Reading about these events in a text book does not do them justice. This has really helped me understand what it means to be Canadian. I have seen the beaches and I understand what the young men went through. This is a fantastic museum that has helped me gain a better understanding of my own country.

It is one thing to learn and study WWII through textbooks and assignments. However, documentation and secondary sources can only do so much. Within a classroom and with the right teacher, history comes alive. It is a magical phenomenon when one is able to actually set foot where D-Day occurred. It is a great opportunity to be able to connect your classroom knowledge with the real artefacts and landings beaches. I will forever be able to remember facing the English Channel where thousands of men crossed and risked their lives for the life we live today. Overall, it is a true blessing to be able to set foot on soil so significant to the face of today.
