The Tank Museum brings the history and use of the tank to life with live displays and interactive exhibitions.

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, with many rare historic examples exhibited.  The museum displays over 200 of its collection and offers adults and children an opportunity to learn about the tank's history and evolution throughout historic and modern warfare.

Visitors can also access the Tank Museum's Archive & Reference Library, the world's foremost research centre on the subject of armoured warfare.  More specifically, the resources held are directly related to the Royal Armoured Corps, especially the Royal Tank Regiment.
