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 6 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 200 vehicles includes the world’s first ever tank, the infamous German Tiger tank, and the modern Challenger 2.
New for 2011: “Battlegroup Afghanistan – The Armoured Soldiers Story”. The men of the Royal Armoured Corps have been engaged in some of the fiercest fighting since World War Two, and now they tell their story. Visitors will explore a recreated Forward Operating Base and hear first hand accounts from the veterans whilst browsing a range of new vehicles used in Afghanistan today.
“The Tank Story” exhibition tells the story of the tank from its World War One origin. Opened in 2009, this major 50,000 sq ft multi-media exhibition puts the development of the tank in context with global events, whilst the experiences of tank crews are presented in their own words.
“The Trench Experience” puts visitors into the shoes of a World War One solider. In “The Discovery Centre”, visitors find out how different tanks are used in different ways.
