What to expect

As they discover the numerous exhibition spaces at the Mémorial de Caen Museum, visitors take a journey through 20th-century world - and especially European - history. The museum recounts major historical events from the end of the First World War to the fall of the Berlin Wall, focusing more particularly on the European perspective of these historical episodes. This visit is therefore an opportunity to delve into our shared past, with the help of diverse historical documents and objects.

The Mémorial de Caen Museum encourages people to think actively about history, memory, and peace and is, therefore, an essential tool for understanding the world and its transformations. It is also the best way of introducing and explaining D-Day and of understanding in what way the one hundred days of the Invasion of Normandy were a major turning point in history.

For the 20th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, don't miss the exhibition "The World After 9/11" that looks back at the socio-political consequences of the event, 20 years later! The exhibition, divided into 7 main chapters, traces the consequences of the attacks of 11 September 2001 over the last two decades. The work of journalists, photographers, reporters, and historians has made it possible to create this exhibition and to explain how the world has suddenly changed.
