The Tank Museum is a registered charity and independent Museum, accredited by The Museums Libraries and Archives Association.

As a not for profit organisation, all surplus income is reinvested in the Tank Museum.

Volunteering and The Friends of The Tank Museum: There are many ways you can help The Tank Museum. We could not operate without the assistance provided by our army of volunteers, and the enormous contribution made by The Friends of The Tank Museum.

Heritage Lottery Endowment Fund: The Tank Museum has launched an Endowment Campaign to secure its long term future and keep the museum and its unique collection safe and accessible for all time. Our first goal is to raise £500,000 and we are delighted to be supported in this by the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Catalyst: Endowment Fund. All contributions over the next four years will be matched by the HLF, up to our target of £1m.
