The D-Day Story is the only UK museum dedicated to telling the story of 6 June 1944 through exhibits, interactives and video from the perspective of those who were there.

Follow the story the largest seaborne invasion in history that took place during the Second World War, from the preparation and build-up to the landings and Battle of Normandy.

Divided into three distinct parts, the museum includes access to LCT 7074, the last surviving landing craft tank which carried ten tanks to Normandy on D-Day and the impressive 83-metre Overlord Embroidery. Explore sound effects, see recreated crew quarters and the Sherman and Churchill tanks that bring the experience of being on board to life.

The museum is also home to the Overlord Embroidery, telling the story of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy in 34 extraordinary hand-stitched panels. And you can also explore the Legacy Gallery, where moving film clips of veterans talking about their experiences give you first-hand insight into the events of D-Day.
