The D-Day Story tells the story of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. It holds over 10,000 items – preserving, researching and acquiring objects to share with the public through exhibitions, workshops and other activities. The museum is fully accredited, meeting nationally agreed standards for UK museums.
The D-Day Story is one of six museums run by Portsmouth Museums, part of Portsmouth City Council. Responsibility for the museums service falls under the remit of the council’s cabinet member for Culture, Leisure and Sport.
The aims of Portsmouth Museums are to: reflect the diversity of the city’s culture and communities in our visitors and offer; provide inspirational opportunities for people to enjoy and learn from the collections; and to showcase the national and international heritage of the city.
The D-Day Story is supported by the Portsmouth D-Day Museum Trust, registered charity No 1156976.
