CONTENT OF THE VISIT

The Juno Beach Centre is composed of:

Book Tickets Online - Visit of the museum + Juno Park
  • The permanent displays which include 5 exhibit spaces and 2 films to present the war effort made by all Canadians, civilian and military alike, on the various fronts during the Second World War to present day. The permanent exhibit alternates between areas of emotion, reflection, discovery and information, eliciting the visitor’s participation.
  • A temporary exhibit room which alternates between historic or cultural themes. Starting on February 1st, 2014, the Juno Beach Centre will present a new temporary exhibit entitled Grandma, what was it like during the War? Life for Normans and Canadians from occupation to Liberation.” This exhibit, conceived and created by the Juno Beach Centre especially for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, tells the story of Norman and Canadian civilians (specifically children) from 1940 to 1944. The exhibit answers the questions: “What would my everyday life have been like if I was a kid living in Normandy in 1944, like my great grandparents?”; “Who did the Canadians liberate when they landed in Normandy?”; “Who were the occupiers?”. Children will be enlightened as to what their great-grandparents would have endured during the war, as well as the meaning of “Liberation”.
Temporary Exhibit starting on February 1st, 2014
