The tank was a British invention that changed warfare for ever when first introduced during WW1 – and Bovington has been the home of the tank ever since…
From the Somme to Tiananmen Square or D-Day to Desert Storm, the tank has played a part in shaping history and it continues to do so today. The Bovington Tank Museum has a unique collection of over 300 vehicles, including the world’s first ever tank, the feared German Tiger tank and the modern Challenger 2.
Exhibitions tell the story of armoured warfare from WW1 to the present day. As you explore the museum’s six large halls you’ll come face to face with vehicles that have seen action in all the major wars of the 20th century and hear first hand accounts from those who fought in them.
