D-DAY MUSEUM

D-DAY MUSEUM
D-DAY MUSEUM

Britain's only museum dedicated to Operation Overlord, the invasion of France on 6 June 1944. Covers all aspects of D-Day, including equipment, displays and eye witness accounts. Also includes the Overlord Embroidery, which tells the story of D-Day rather like the Bayeux Tapestry tells the story of the Norman Invasion of 1066.

NB The museum is currently closed for a major refurbishment and is due to re-open in the Spring of 2018.
