Portsmouth D-Day Museum Trust

The trust’s objectives are the advancement of the education of the public by the promotion, assistance, and improvement of the D-Day Museum, Portsmouth, and its related activities and of historic sites and other areas of cultural interest relating to the D-Day story.

The Portsmouth D-Day Museum Trust is a registered charity (No 1156976).
