Great museum, don't go expecting the size of the imperial war museum but expect a similar standard. What they have got is good, enjoyed our visit and found it good value. Lots of parking available and a cafe on site.

The No.19 or No.23 go quite close to the D-Day Museum. If you search online for "Portsmouth bus route map" you can see where they go. However the museum is currently closed for refurbishment, reopening March 2018.
