    This Summer Holiday explore The Tank Museum and experience the biggest day out in history…

    Experience for yourself the thrill of riding in an M548 tracked vehicle. This working example of military hardware seats 16 at a time – so the whole family can jump on together. Available every day, 11.30am – 4.30pm, during the holidays, a £3.50pp charge applies.

    Take part in a range of family activities. Kids can also let off steam in our outdoor play area and in our new inside soft play area, adjacent to our Café. Plus free family trails to keep them absorbed with teasers and puzzles!
