What to expect

The Day Pass is made up of a self-guided visit of the Mémorial de Caen and a guided tour of the D-Day Landing Beaches and key sites. Visitors can spend as much time as they wish discovering the Mémorial de Caen on the same day as their Landing Beaches guided tour or on another day (entrance tickets to the museum are valid for 24 hours).

The Mémorial de Caen offers its visitors the opportunity to take a historical journey through the 20th century, discovering major events from the end of the First World War to the fall of the Berlin Wall. It has a whole section covering D-Day and is the only museum in Normandy to relate the intensity of the Invasion that followed and explain its preparation in both enemy camps.

The Landing Beaches guided tour will give visitors the chance to learn the story of a day that changed the course of history. The tour is a complete 5 hours round trip with a bilingual guide (French & English) from Mémorial de Caen in an air-conditioned mini-van, and it includes the visit of the following sites: Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American Military Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer.
