About This Attraction
Tell your D-Day Story. There’s an awesome activity pack to share your stories. Your contributions will come together to create a new story map. #TheDDayStory
The D-Day Story has recently re-opened following a £5 million transformation project (supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund). The museum tells the story of D-Day in World War Two – from the preparation and build up, to the landings on the beaches in northern France and the Battle of Normandy.
This compelling story is told through the perspectives of the people involved, using authentic objects, interactives and video. Dynamic displays of the D-Day beaches and iconic landing craft will transport you back to the Battle of Normandy. The displays are interactive to appeal to all age groups.
Based on ordinary people working together to achieve the extraordinary, The D-Day Story features the experiences of men, women and children.
The legacy gallery features the magnificent Overlord Embroidery. A new central gallery, giving the impression of an artist’s studio and explains the techniques used to create the embroidery and an opportunity to learn more about those involved in its creation.
Opening times – daily 10am – 5pm (5.30pm April – Sept).
Closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Child (aged 5-17)
