The Tank Museum was founded in 1923 as a teaching resource for engineers and soldiers of the Tank Corps. Over the last 96 years, the Museum has dramatically transformed from a training aid for the army to a 21st century Museum aspiring towards access and excellence for all.

Based at Bovington Camp, the home of the tank, the Museum boasts the most comprehensive collection of armoured fighting vehicles in the world, originating from the Royal Armoured Corps, British Allies, and armies fighting against British forces. In addition, the Museum has a very strong supporting collection of medals, photographs, film, sound recordings, fine art, books, weapons, models and memorabilia. Current displays tell the story of the tank in the 20th and 21st century, from its inception in 1915 to the war in Afghanistan.

The entire collection has Designated Status and in 2018 The Tank Museum became part of Arts Council England's National Portfolio.

Over 200,000 people visit the Tank Museum every year where we bring the history of tanks and tank crew to life… Supported by the world’s best collection of tanks & action packed live displays. Our staff play a vital role in ensuring each and every one of them has a memorable and enjoyable visit.
