We visited as a family during half term and were really impressed with the D-Day Centre. Right from walking in the door the staff and volunteers were really friendly and knowledgable and what really sets this place apart is being actively encouraged to touch and climb on the exhibits. For me sitting in a Half Track indulged my inner child, bringing back memories of making Airfix kits of them as a kid. More importantly, seeing and feeling a little of what it must have been like for the guys who actually had to fight in them really made it personal and raised my respect for what that generation did for our freedom today. One thing that has made our visit special is that our four year old is still taking about it a few days later. For me that’s important because it’s keeping the younger generation interested that will keep the memory alive. The D-Day Centre is an absolute credit to the museum community and I hope it’s somewhere that will be around for some years to come! Lest We Forget.

Absolutely brilliant place to go, my kids had the best time, the fact that our little ones want to climb on everything this could not be more of an ideal place, so interactive, me & my family absolutely loved it, total hidden gem of a place & could not recommend highly enough......I almost feel my words don’t do it justice🙌🏼

A brilliant few hours spent here with our 2 grandsons. They were allowed to sit on the large exhibits, handle the old guns, enjoy the whole museum, it was a brilliant experience.

We learnt so much from this gem of a museum . Never realised how much a role the isle of Portland played in the D day landing. Excellent hands on experience for the 12 year old and even the 16 year old engaged in some of the activities. Definitely worth a visit if visiting the area.
