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.

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

A fantastic couple of hours here. From the statues outside, the landing craft that you can explore,through the exhibition with actually footage of the day. Then onto the embroidery/tapestry telling the whole story this blew me away..

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

A superb experience with excellent detail, information and historical facts. Engaging throughout and highly recommended

So many interesting facts about D-Day and worthy of visit.
