Portsmouth: The D-Day Story Entry Ticket

1. Portsmouth: The D-Day Story Entry Ticket

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.

Great day out we were a group of sibling 70plus meeting up for a reunion with 1 sibling who did an apprenticeship at Portsmouth dockyard ..father of 4 was in world war 2..mother of 4 was bombed out London and they met in army So what a lovely day out which helped conversation and memory sharing bringing this history to life in your exhibition ..the audio visual was amazing to help reminiscing

Incredible museum about the D Day landings. Countless exhibits, references of personal accounts, vehicles, the new Landing Craft and the amazing tapestry. Staff are hugely knowledgeable and passionate about the exhibits. Really do take a moment to talk with them

Accessible with walker Interesting Well labelled, informative. The only thing I wanted more information about was exactly how the embroidery was done 0 which stitches were used, eg for faces- some were obvious - some weren't

It was well presented, lots to read & look at. Very moving to hear of people’s stories of the time & read their letters home. Interactive things to use to discover if you would have made the right decisions to win the war.

Great day, so interesting and I had no idea of the scale and the thought that had gone into the D Day landings. Quite staggering.
