The Juno Beach Centre is Canada’s Second World War museum and cultural centre located in Normandy, France. The Centre pays homage to the 45,000 Canadians who lost their lives during the War, of which 5,500 were killed during the Battle of Normandy and 359 on D-Day. Opened in 2003 by veterans and volunteers with a vision to create a permanent memorial to all Canadians who served during the Second World War, the Centre’s mandate is to preserve this legacy for future generations through education and remembrance.

The Juno Beach Centre helps to give visitors a better understanding of the contribution that Canada made to the Second World War. Both a memorial and an educational museum, the Juno Beach Centre tells Canada’s story from 1939 to 1945 and provides visitors a glimpse into contemporary Canadian culture and traditions. 

Remember June 6, 1944… Remember one million of Canadians in uniform, making a decisive contribution to the Allied Victory… Preserving the gifts of valour and freedom for future generations, the Juno Beach Centre presents an online museum of the Canadian war effort...
