Caen Memorial Museum (Mémorial de Caen) Tours

Located a short drive from the D-Day Landing Beaches, the Caen Memorial Museum (Mémorial de Caen) puts one of the most significant battles of World War II into historical context. The museum gardens serve as a poignant tribute to the international soldiers that lost their lives on Norman soil.

The Basics
Interactive exhibitions and multimedia displays take visitors through the events of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, and offer a wider look at the key events of WWI and II, and the Cold War. Museum highlights include the immersive 360° movie ‘Europe Our History’; the command post of General Major Wilhelm Richter, located in a tunnel beneath the museum; and three memorial gardens devoted to the American, British, and Canadian troops. Explore on a self-guided tour or opt for a guided tour for deeper insight.
