Thanks to the interactive and dynamic exhibit spaces designed for all ages, the Juno Beach Centre is an ideal location to help teach your students about the D-Day landings and the Battle of Normandy by taking a close look at the role played by the Canadians.
SELF-GUIDED VISIT JUNO BEACH CENTRE
A unique and not to be missed youth circuit “Explore Juno ”
In the permanent exhibit, interactive modules will enable primary and secondary school groups and their teachers to discover the museum including themes such as democracy, daily life of children and Canadian families and soldiers and nurses during the war. These themes encourage reflection on the world today and remembrance. Across the different exhibit rooms, thanks to a quiz (two versions: primary and secondary) students are invited to learn about the role that may have been theirs during the Second World War, and to reflect on universal historical concepts tied to themes of immigration, total war or political dictators.
“With Explore Juno, I discovered what it was like for youth my age
during the war. It made me think.” Thomas, 11 years old.
“A passionate visit led by a dynamic and engaging team. The children were thrilled and left with a better understanding of the importance of peace among different people.” F. Culleron, teacher Graye-sur-Mer.
