The Tank Museum

This place is usually open now.

Come face-to-face with over 300 huge military machines and hear about amazing experiences as you explore our nine powerful and awe-inspiring exhibitions covering over a century of history.

With trails and quizzes, interactive games and exhibits, indoor and outdoor play areas, and free talks and tours, you can spend the whole day at The Tank Museum without getting bored. In the spring and summer holidays, you can see Tanks in Action and ride round the arena in an M548 tracked vehicle.

There are special events going on throughout the year, including TANKFEST, model shows and Tiger Days, as well as a Christmas market.

The Tank Museum is fully wheelchair accessible throughout, with free wheelchairs for hire available. As well as being close to Wool station, there is a large free carpark including coach, motorbike and disabled parking. There is an onsite restaurant and café serving a variety of hot meals, snacks, and drinks from Dorset and South West suppliers.
