There’s much to see and do at the Juno Beach Centre!

At the museum, The Juno Beach Centre helps to give visitors a better understanding of the contribution that Canada made to the Second World War. At the same time, by showcasing contemporary Canada, the Centre allows visitors to learn more about Canadian values and culture. The permanent and temporary exhibits alternate between areas of emotion, reflection, discovery and remembrance, eliciting the visitor’s participation.

Juno Park was the scene of intense combat during the landings on June 6, 1944 and still contains many remnants of the defenses that were built on the site as part of the Atlantic Wall. Known to the Germans as Stütztpunkt (Strongpoint) 31, this 1,500m stretch of beach contained some 30 bunkers and defensive positions, including three anti-tank guns and twelve machine guns. To the Canadian soldiers landing on D-Day, it was known as “Mike Red Sector, Juno Beach”. On the morning of June 6, 1944, it was B Company, Royal Winnipeg Rifles and A Squadron, First Hussars who led the assault on this well defended position. Within two hours of landing, they had declared the area to be clear of resistance.
