The Caen Memorial is a must-visit museum a stone's throw from the D-Day beaches!
From the origins of the Second World War to the end of the Cold War, the museum depicts the terrible history of the 20th century. Don't miss the priceless photographs!
Visit the Patrick Chauvel exhibition! The free permanent exhibition presents the career of the great war correspondent who reported on conflicts around the world in the last 50 years.
A must-see! A unique feast for the senses to get to grips with our European history with the 360° screening of "L'Europe notre histoire" ("Europe our history" film screening included in museum admission fee).
The Memorial presents a temporary exhibition from June to December 2022: La lumière de l’ombre - photographies des camps nazis 1988-2000 (Light in the dark - Nazi camp photographs 1988-2000). This exhibition presents Michael Kenna's solo project exploring Nazi camps.
