Located in the immediate vicinity of the D-Day Landing beaches, the Mémorial de Caen visitor centre is among the essential sites focusing on the Battle of Normandy and 20th century history.

From the origins of the Second World War to the end of the Cold War, museographical displays tell this terrible side of 20th century history.

Indeed, Caen, bombarded during the summer of 1944, a liberated yet martyred city, deserved a tribute well worthy of the suffering it endured.

This is precisely the purpose of the Mémorial de Caen, but via a continuing perspective and action aimed at reconciliation.

Over your visit, you will discover the historic events that marked the Second World War, from the onslaught of Nazism to the Normandy landings, via the Holocaust. Several films ensure a comprehensive and diversified visit. A museum area is specially devoted to the Cold War and to press illustrations.

Recently added areas:

- The D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy

- General Richter's command post, underground bunker at the foot of the Mémorial (since June 2013)

Audio guides are available in several languages.

In 2016, a new film entitled "The D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy" offers a highly emotional 19-minute account of History. The Battle of Normandy like you've never seen it before!
