Discover Caen and its region
Situated only 800m from the Caen Memorial, we can’t talk about tourism without recommending you visit this peace museum.
Furthermore, we invite our guests to go into two other museums in the city: the Museum of Normandy and the Museum of the Beaux-Arts.
400 metres from our establishment stands a memorial commemorating the Second World War: the peace museum, known as the Caen Memorial.
Opened in 1986, nowadays it receives around 600000 visitors a year, which makes it the 2nd largest national museum (outside Île-de-France) in terms of attendance*. More than a place of reflection, the Memorial revisits the origins of conflict and carries on until the end of the Cold War.
The peace museum invites real reflection on the history of the 20th century.
During your visit, you will discover different exhibitions, films and the imposing American cemetery.
Open from February to December, it is advised to allow around 4 hours for the visit.
All the information can be found on the official website: www.memorial-caen.fr
