*Please note, LCT 7074 is not included as part of your ticket to the National Museum of the Royal Navy.
NMRN worked with Portsmouth City Council's D-Day Story Museum and maritime heritage experts to restore, conserve, research, interpret and display the 59-metre 300-ton landing craft tank ship which is now open to visitors.
The restoration was the joint winner of the Museum and Heritage Awards’ 2021 Restoration or Conservation Project of the Year. The citation read “The scale of this project is astonishing and was, without doubt, challenging. It was detailed in its conservation principles and brilliantly delivered – the judges felt that it was a remarkable achievement.”
LCT 7074 is now on display outside the D-Day Story Museum alongside the stories of other D-Day heroes.
