Portsmouth's D-Day Museum tells the dramatic story of the Allied Landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944. Centrepiece is the magnificent 'Overlord Embroidery', 83 metres long. Step back in time to scenes of wartime Britain. Archive film presentation, military equipment, vehicles, landing craft and personal memories complete this special story.
