The Tank Museum brings the story of tanks and their crews to life, with the world’s best collection of tanks in modern, awe-inspiring exhibitions.

The museum houses some 300 tanks, which represent moments in every major conflict since the First World War.

Our moving exhibitions tell the story of this British invention; from the mud of the Somme to the beaches of Normandy and the deserts of Iraq – featuring powerful stories from the soldiers that fought in them.

Over 200,000 people visit Dorset’s largest indoor attraction each year, with the annual TANKFEST event drawing visitors from around the world.

The collections of this Accredited and Nationally Styled Museum (which include weapons, uniforms, memorabilia, documents, personal papers, images, and books - alongside the vehicles themselves) are Designated as being of outstanding national importance.

Additionally, The Tank Museum’s Archive and Library is a recognised place of deposit for the National Archive.

Over the past decade, the museum has transformed itself into a leading 21st century military museum and first-class visitor attraction, capitalising on its online reach to develop a supporter base across the globe.

The Tank Museum was founded in 1923 as a teaching resource for the Tank Corps. They had made their home in Bovington during the First World War, and it was here that many of the first tank crews were trained.

Bovington remains home to The Royal Armoured Corps - and The Tank Museum is an independent registered charity which is the museum of both the Royal Armoured Corps and the Royal Tank Regiment.
