Educational workshop: "A child's life during the Occupation"

The workshops set primary school pupils educational tasks that complement the work done during their visit to the museum. Children are shown a range of objects and documents from the period so they can analyse their meaning, purpose and historical interes.

Pupils learn about the life of a 10-year-old child during the Occupation… Their games, worries and life as a schoolchild take concrete form with a range of period objects which all pupils can observe and handle.

The D-Day Landing Beaches

Guided tours

How the site visits are organised:

  • The guide meets you at the Caen Mémorial museum, in your coach (which must be fitted with a microphone).
  • During the outbound trip, the guide gives an introduction which sets the D-Day landings against the general background of the Second World War. They explain why Normandy was chosen to reconquer Europe, and the stakes involved in the D-Day landings.
  • At the end of the circuit, return to the museum to drop the guide off.
