The Tank Museum brings the history of tanks and tank crews to life, supported by the world’s best collection of armoured vehicles and action packed live displays. As you explore the Museum’s six large halls, you will come face to face with tanks that have seen action in all the major conflicts of the 20th century. This unique collection of over 300 vehicles includes the world’s first ever tank, the infamous German Tiger tank, and the modern Challenger 2. Marking the centenary of World War One The Trench Experience takes you back in time to the trenches in 1916. New from 2014, the Warhorse to Horsepower exhibition examines the rise of the tank and the role of the cavalry in the mud of the Western Front. Battlegroup Afghanistan is also well worth exploring, where the men of the Royal Armoured Corps tell their story of some of the fiercest fighting since World War 2. You can explore a recreated Forward Operating Base and experience the living conditions of soldiers today plus see a range of combat vehicles used in operations.
