The Portsmouth D-Day Museum Trust

About Us

Founded in 2015, our mission is to continue to preserve the memory of the story of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. Our work is to continue the D-Day legacy to memorialize the bravery, and sacrifice of those who fought to liberate Europe. 


We support the work of The D-Day Story to ensure the ongoing educational and outreach programmes in order to facilitate access to the museum for younger generations, transmitting the story of D-Day, and ensuring the preservation of its memory.


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

The Trust’s first task has been to secure the match funding required for The D-Day Story re-development.  Future activity will involve seeking funding to support an ongoing programme of events and activities.
