The Tank Museum brings history to life, with the world’s best collection of tanks and explosive live displays. 

Our exhibitions tell the story of armoured warfare spanning over 100 years of history. Exploring eight powerful exhibitions, you will come face to face with almost 300 armoured vehicles.  This unique collection includes the world’s first ever tank, the feared German Tiger and the modern Challenger 2.

“The Tank Story” details tank history from its birth in 1915 to the present in a modern exhibition.  “Battlegroup Afghanistan” transports you to today’s front line as combat veterans give their accounts alongside the vehicles used on operations today.  In “The Discovery Centre” you’ll see the breadth of our vehicle collections as well as seeing who tanks are made in “Tank Factory”.

The Tank Museum’s First World War Centenary exhibition, “Tank Men”, tells the stories of the first men who fought bravely in these revolutionary machines. Let the “The Trench Experience” take you back in time to the trenches of the First World War, whilst “Warhorse to Horsepower” examines the role of horses in war.

There are special events going on throughout the year at The Tank Museum including TANKFEST, Tiger Day and the Vintage Christmas Festival and Craft Fayre, as well as special activity programmes during the School Holidays.

TANKFEST, on the last weekend of June, is the world’s best display of historic moving armour! With stalls, food, entertainment and activities as well, this is an event for the whole family.

Don’t miss the explosive Tanks in Action Displays, every weekday during the School Holidays. Watch in awe as tanks roll into action in our arena, with thundering engines and life-like explosions!

Ending in 2018!: See “The Tiger Collection” exhibition, which brings together the Tiger tank family for the first time, before it ends at the end of 2018.
