Following a £5 million transformation project (supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund), the D-Day Museum has re-opened as The D-Day Story. 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 visitors back to the Battle of Normandy.
The Overlord Embroidery is now displayed behind new glass panels so the vibrant colours and skilful stitching can be fully appreciated. A new gallery has been created where visitors can learn about some of the people involved in creating the embroidery.
