Meet Normandy veterans at the D-Day Museum

Portsmouth, Hampshire

If you're visiting Portsmouth over the holidays, visit the D-Day Museum where you'll be able to meet the men and women that took part in the landings.

Portsmouth's D-Day Museum is the UK's only museum dedicated solely to covering all aspects of the D-Day Landings in Normandy, France on 6 June 1944.

You'll experience the sights and sounds of Britain at war - such as an air raid warden's living room in the Blitz, troops preparing for D-Day in their forest camp, the map room at the Allied headquarters at Southwick House, and a Horsa glider that has landed in Normandy.

At the heart of the museum, commemorating the D-Day landings in 1944, the 272 foot (83 metre) Overlord Embroidery is the world's longest embroidery of its kind and the modern equivalent of the Bayeux Tapestry. This impressive museum is a memorable and truly moving experience.

Check out the D-Day Museum's website for information on upcoming events and information about D-Day Commemorations.
