The D-Day Museum and Overlord Embroidery
The D-Day Museum has secured Heritage Lottery Fund support! The Museum has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a £4.1 million bid to completely transform the museum to tell the D-Day story for museum visitors in the 21st century.

Portsmouth’s D-Day Museum is Britain’s only museum dedicated solely to covering all aspects of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France, on 6 June 1944. D-Day was a turning point in the Second World War, and a moment when the course of world events depended on the Allied troops taking part. Find out more about what you can see in the museum's displays, including the Overlord Embroidery. Discover more about D-Day here - including the answer to the question "What does D-Day stand for?"
Have a look at D-Day on your Doorstep, our unique new listing of locations throughout the UK that are connected to the D-Day Landings (we encourage you to add your own locations too).
