Legacy & Overlord Embroidery

The legacy gallery features the magnificent Overlord Embroidery commissioned to remember those who took part in D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

Displays explore the experiences of loss and coming home and D-Day as inspiration for games and film.

Film clips of veterans talking about their experiences give visitors further insight into what took place.

A small central gallery, giving the impression of an artist’s studio, explains the techniques used to create the embroidery and who was involved in its creation.
