The D-Day Museum and Overlord Embroidery
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?"
Want to find out more about the latest research into D-Day and the Battle of Normandy from experts in the field, and also about research by local community groups into the D-Day connections of their local areas? Then you need to come to our D-Day anniversary conference at the D-Day Museum on 10-11 May 2014 with a range of expert speakers. Click here for more information.
