Journey through European history, deep into the tribulations of WWII. The interactive exhibit rooms of the Mémorial de Caen confront visitors with the shocking statistics and stories of wartime Europe.

The museum combines reels of archival information with artifacts from the 1940s – including the instruments of war, and the small luxuries of civilian life – to guide you through history. You'll also gain a deeper understanding of the Cold War, and what followed the fall of Nazi Germany.
