The Mémorial de Caen is a war memorial museum built following the century of deep and extensive conflict that was the 20th Century. Caen was an important strategic city during the Battle of Normandy due to its location, traffic, and the German presence there during the fight over Normandy.

The Mémorial de Caen was inaugurated officially in 1988 and was designed by the French architect Jacques Millet. The structure is that of a big concrete-looking building on the site of an old blockhouse. The exhibitions within are divided by theme, explaining the II World War, the D-Day Landings, and the Battle of Normandy. Since 2002 on the initiative of the then President Jacques Chirac two extra exhibitions were added, dedicated respectively to the Cold War and the Search for Peace.

In addition to the educational exhibitions and war artifacts can be found, the Mémorial de Caen is a tourist attraction for the surrounding gardens dedicated to the three main allied nations – Canada, United Kingdom, and America.
