A good insight into the war years, for all ages. Also a good coffee shop. The bunker brings the feel of the conditions to life

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.
