"A very interesting exhibition, I only wish I was could be here longer to see and read more of the information. Really recommend to anyone who visits."

Design for the redeveloped D-Day Museum
The image below gives an impression of how the redesigned D-Day Museum will look. Some key features are:
- The flow of visitors around the building will be reversed (from clockwise to anti-clockwise) which will improve the visitor experience and mean that the magnificent Overlord Embroidery forms the finale of the visit.
- The first part of the displays will cover the varied aspects of the Allies' preparations for D-Day, from technological developments to training the troops.
- In the "D-Day Experience" section, a major space will be given over to telling the story of D-Day itself (at the moment, the majority of the displays look at the preparations for D-Day). The story will be told through the voices of the veterans, based on oral history interviews and the D-Day Museum's archive collection.
- The "legacy" section, in the centre of the Overlord Embroidery gallery, will
- Our vehicles will be displayed with more space around them, so that visitors can better view and understand them.
- The café will be moved to a new position, closer to the front entrance of the museum. In the cafe's old position, we will create a separate permanent education room that can be used by schools, for events etc.
Aspects of what is shown below may change in the finished design, following further development, discussion and consultation.
