Juno Beach Center Reviews & Ratings
Every single Canadian needs to go and check out the Juno Beach centre. The staff are so knowledgable and helpful. They are all students from Canada and you can see the pride they have in Canada as there guide you through the centre and around the grounds. You'll definitely walk away as a proud Canadian.
Great guided tour of the bunkers by a very informative French-Canadian followed by a well presented museum.
A lesser known area of the Allied D-Day invasion. Worth seeing.
Excellent museum honoring Canadian forces that fought and died in Normandy. Staff are Canadian and are super friendly (they’re Canadian!). My son and I really enjoyed it. I met a nice Canadian on a short business visit to the area at the American Cemetery at Omaha. He mentioned he had limited time and I emphasized he visit here as all Canadians should!
Very interesting and eye opening, never knew that the Germans used POW. to guard the occupied coastline and let them shoot at the allieds by threatening them with "if you don't shoot them we'll shoot you" All these young soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom. We took the guided tour, do so, you'll see it's worth it.
