Hampshire County Council’s in-house architects lead on upgrade of 1980s attraction

Hampshire County Council’s in-house architecture team has completed a £5m redesign of Portsmouth’s D-Day Museum ahead of next year’s 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings.

The project has seen significant alterations to the Southsea museum, which originally opened in 1984, along with landscaping by UBU Design and exhibition design by Studio MB.

Rebranded as the D-Day Story, the museum now features personal accounts of the landings – a turning point in the course of the Second World War – from a variety of perspectives.
