Visitors Experience General Manager, Rosanna Dean, “For generations, people have made tank model kits and been inspired to visit The Tank Museum to see the real thing.”

“This event combines two great passions; modelling and military history. Not only will visitors have the opportunity to see the latest modelling creations and meet like-minded people, but they’ll also have the chance to hear from the experts and pick up new tricks and tips on how to perfect their models at home.”
