The Caen Memorial
The museum displays trace the tumultuous history of the 20th century, from the start of World War II to the end of the Cold War.
Caen was bombed in summer 1944 and became a “martyr city” during the Liberation. The city, therefore, deserved recognition for the suffering it endured. This homage was duly paid, in a spirit of reconciliation, the same spirit which guides all the Mémorial's activities. This special aspect of the Mémorial guides visitors through each section of the museum, immersing them in the history of the 20th century.
New from July 2016, the "The Battle of Normandy: 100 days that changed the world" film enables visitors to relive 19 minutes of history and pure emotion. The Battle of Normandy as you’ve never seen it before!
