Experience the Tiger 131 in action

See the world’s only running Tiger I tank in action during its last outing of 2023 at Tiger Day 16th September.

 Tiger 131 runs only twice a year, on Tiger Day in April and September, and attracts huge crowds who can experience living history as it takes to the arena. Visitors will have the chance to see and hear it in action in a 45-minute WW2 tank display that also includes fellow German moving armour, the Panzer I and Panzer III.

As well as an action-packed arena display, including movie co-star the Sherman ‘Fury’, Comet, Chaffee, and more, visitors will be able to get up close to vehicles in the Tank Park, and explore military history encampments. Inside the Museum, tank fans can enjoy the 300 strong collection of military vehicles.

The Tank Museum is also giving Tiger fans the chance to win a ride in its most famous exhibit in a special raffle. One lucky winner will take their seat on 16 September at Tiger Day.

Museum Curator David Willey said, “Tiger 131 is the famous tank in the world and there are a lot of tank fans who will jump at the chance for a ride in this WW2 icon.”

All profits from the Tiger raffle will go towards supporting the Museum’s historic tank collection and ensuring that Tiger 131 can be kept in running order for years to come.”
