Fascinating, very moving and in a stunning building. Beware of lunchtime closing if you only have limited time in the town!

A beautiful little park at the base of the Chateau holds a lovely Memorial for all the Canadian Soldiers who sadly lost their life. So serene.

This is a nice little "garden" at the end of the street below the fortress. As Canadians, it was surprising to see how much France celebrates Canada's contribution to the wars. We never drove by any monuments or memorials for other countries so prominently displayed anywhere throughout from Vimy all the way to the Normandy beaches.

Had been to Dieppe several times, but this was always closed as it only opens Saturday and Sunday in the off season. Went expecting a quick visit, but stayed for ages watching the video about the failed invasion. Absolutely fascinating.

I went to the 70th Anniversary of the Dieppe Raid 16-21 Aug 12. The first thing you think is wow how beautiful and the second was, what were they thinking advancing on these beaches.

What an experience! This is part of British history that needs to be told as what happened then was appalling. As you enter the museum you find yourself inside an old, but once glorious, theatre. There are boards around the auditorium which tell the story in English and in French and also display cabinets. However the video presentation with film... More

OK, I'll admit my bias right up front - my grandfather was killed during the Dieppe Raid on August 19, 1942. I was in Dieppe for the 70th anniversary of the raid and my visit to the museum really helped round out my experience. The video presentation was excellent and included numerous interviews with soldiers who participated the raid and... More

Really lovely little museum in what was once a beautiful theatre which is sadly going to ruin. Informative information in both french and english. Good video presentation and well worth a visit to pay your respects. At 2.70 euros each very good value. Be careful though we almost missed being able to go as just stayed over on a monday... More

A must to see, even if it is only to pay our respects to the ones that gave their life to have a free world
