The D-Day Story


50% off entry

The D-Day story is told through archive films, landing craft, weapons and the 83-metre Overlord Embroidery

The D-Day Museum is the UK’s only museum dedicated solely to all aspects of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France on 6 June 1944.

Permanent collection

D-Day was a turning point in the Second World War, when the Allied troops changed the course of world events. The museum explores the significance of the Normandy landings and tells the story of those who took part. Their achievement is celebrated in the magnificent Overlord Embroidery, which at 272 feet (83 metres) in length is the world’s longest embroidery of its kind, and the 20th-century equivalent of the Bayeux Tapestry. In the audio-visual theatre archive film footage, music, wartime images and the words of those who lived through it evoke the atmosphere of the war. There are also displays of personal memorabilia, maps, uniforms, vehicles and other historic artefacts.
