Can't make it to our D-Day 80th Anniversary event? Don't worry, we have a whole weekend planned to commemorate the anniversary!

Join us for reenactments, military vehicle displays, talks, stalls, live music, food and drink and more! We have something for all the family.

Why not climb inside our battle damaged Sherman tank, try on authentic uniforms, handle real WW2 weapons, and even explore D-Day from the German perspective, complete with authentic Nazi artefacts. Once you have explored the museum, take a short walk across to the pier and beach, where thousands of American troops left for the beaches of Normandy.
