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?"

Monday 20 - Sunday 26 July 2015
The D-Day tea room and the room in which it is located will not be open to the public during this period, because it is being used in connection with the America's Cup World Series races. The remainder of the museum will be open as usual during this period.

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).
