I visited years ago and it was ok, but a little tired. It's now fantastic and anyone with any interest must visit.

Went in here after the refurbishment and was pleasantly surprised at how good they have done it, a few little things for the kids and adults to do as you go round, lots of interesting things on display.

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.
