The Tank Museum is the only place where many of these rare and historic vehicles can be seen. Fresh from a £16m investment in new exhibitions & facilities, with almost 200 vehicles on display in 6 large halls, you will come face-to-face with tanks that have seen action in all the major wars of the 20th century.
The tank was a British invention that changed warfare for ever when it was introduced in World War One – and Bovington has been the home of the tank ever since. From the Somme to Tiananmen Square or D-Day to Desert Storm the tank has played a part in shaping history – and it continues to do so today.
Do look at our website tankmuseum.org for latest information.
The Museum offers a programme of sessions for schools including Key stage 2 and 3, The Home Front 1939 – 1945 and Military Survival Skills; Key stage 2, 3 and 4 - Letters home: voices from the trenches; and Key stage 3 and 4 - Trench warfare and the birth of the tank; Armour, maneuver, firepower; and Cold war on the inner German border.
