Full description

Enjoy a visit to Portsmouth’s fascinating D-Day Story and learn about this pivotal event that changed the course of World War Two. Explore the museum dedicated to telling the story of 6 June 1944 through exhibits, interactives, and video from the perspective of those who were there.

Divided into three distinct parts, The D-Day Story includes access on board the LCT 7074, the last surviving landing craft tank which carried ten tanks to Normandy on D-Day. On board, see the Sherman and Churchill tanks which give an impression of what an LCT full of vehicles would look like.

Learn about the story of D-Day told through personal accounts and the iconic objects from the museum's collection. Discover more about 'The Plan' - how those in charge made the crucial decisions around when and where to cross the channel and the secrecy and deception required.

The museum is also home to the Overlord Embroidery, telling the story of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy in 34 extraordinary hand-stitched panels. Film clips of veterans talking about their experiences give visitors further insight into what took place.

The whole experience was excellent and very carefully managed to adhere to the government guidelines. Staff were available at all times and were polite and helpful. We did not realise that we would be so absorbed in the content and were surprised that we had remained for three hours! The whole experience was very clean and well presented

Good value for the money paid for the entrance fee, there is a reasonable amount to see, should get better once the landing craft is able to be viewed, the only gripe is now everything has to be so clean the trays in the cafe need a damn good washing, unfortunately the material they seem to be made from may not allow this? Either way, wash or change them!!
