The Tank Museum, Bovington

Over 300 vehicles from 29 nations make  up Bovington Tank Museum’s collections, from the  very first  tank to the modern British Challenger II.  Many of the vehicles are unique and can be seen nowhere else in the world.  There are three main exhibitions; The Tank Story, The Trench Experience and The Discovery Centre.
Follow the story of the tank from 1915 into the 21st century. Walk in the footsteps of a WWI soldier, from the recruiting office to the front line. Hear the stories of those who fought in and against these vehicles; from the Trenches in France to the streets of Basra and find out how this important British invention has helped shape world history.  
Look out for exciting events in the summer months, including tank display action days, tank rides and Tank Museum experience days.
