Memorial at the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France

Plenty of visitors to Courseulles-sur-Mer on the Normandy coast come for the sand, sun, and surf. But many also travel to the French village to visit the Juno Beach Centre, a museum and memorial honoring the lives of Canadian enlisted personnel who stormed Juno Beach on this day in 1944, with other Allied forces landing at four additional beaches, in what remains the largest seaborne invasion in history. Their efforts helped the Allies wrest control of Western Europe from Nazi occupiers.

The Juno Beach Centre or, in French, Centre Juno Beach, is a museum located in Courseulles-sur-Mer in the Calvados region of Normandy, France. It is situated immediately behind the beach codenamed Juno, the section of the Allied beachhead on which 14,000 Canadian troops landed on D-Day 6 June 1944.
