Grab a few friends or your local re-enactment club and hire a coach to Portsmouth for the UK’s only D-Day remembrance museum. The museum is dedicated to answering all questions regarding D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, incorporating scenes and props from the historic event as well as displaying Portraits of Normandy veterans and war heroes which should never be forgotten.
It is incredibly important to ensure that valuable museums such as this one remain at the forefront of our minds as a reminder of the price of victory. It is the hope of many that, by taking our children and our children’s children to these museums, the mistake of war is never repeated. Marking the end of the exhibition is a stark photograph of the rows and rows of gravestones located at the Ranville cemetery in Normandy, as a homage to those that lost their lives on D-Day.
The D-Day Museum also has a momentous Embroidery Gallery, which is an audio-visual theatre with film footage, music, tapestries and more laid out to re-create the atmosphere of World War II. For school trips, there is even a ‘Home Front Experience’ suitable for Key Stage 1 and 2, where you can find out what everyday life was like for families throughout the Second World War.
