A Normandy  D-Day Tour with Children: Juno Beach Centre

One of the best ways to educate kids about history is to show them and a D-Day tour of Normandy is the perfect place to start.

Talking about what happened in the place where it actually did happen makes it more real for younger kids. Visiting museums and actual sites where events happened are fun and a great educational tool.

Juno Beach is in France. It spans from Courseulles, a village just east of the British beach Gold, to Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, and just west of the British beach Sword.
