D-Day Story Portsmouth
Re-opened in April 2018, the D-Day Story takes the visitors through the build up to the event, D-Day itself and the Battle of Normandy. The story is told through the perspectives of the people involved using objects, interactives and video. The impressive 83-metre long Overlord Embroidery offers a fantastic finale to the visit.
The new museum is a national centre that reflects the scale and significance of the D-Day story. With exhibitions that truly engage and excite audiences now and into the future, the museum inspires interest in and a greater understanding of what happened and why D-Day is still relevant today. Using the words and perspectives of the people who took part, and the museum’s iconic and evocative collections, the D-Day Museum brings the story to life for this and future generations.
“The D-Day Story is the only museum in the UK that focusses solely on the D-Day landings. Being part of Liberation Route Europe is an exciting chance for us to connect with a wider organisation dedicated to keeping this important episode in history alive.”
