Great! Day? Great day out. Was there 3 hours could have spent longer. The way the site is laid out great. Arena demonstration good stuff. Need more modern US tanks then perfect. Love to see the current or recently retired US MB tank.

Amazing Amazing day out. We spent around 5 hours. 100’s tanks to see through different periods. Watched Tanks in action display. Coffee shop/restaurant fairly priced. Visited the conservation centre where over 100 tanks stored. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic day out As a parent I have trudged around many a tank and army museum bored out of my mind. Yet this place was absolutely brilliant the live display the actual live show driving through the Barracks. Worth the drive

Great family day out Such a fun day for all the family. My children aged 10 & 13 found it very interesting as did my partner and I. We took a picnic which we ate during the display which was a nice break outside, however it was very busy and very hot with no shade out on the lawns so bring a hat and plenty of water if the forecast is set to be warm. I would highly recommend this museum to anyone who is not only looking for a family fun day but also to anyone who is a real history buff as it is so interesting. Tickets are so reasonably priced and you can return as many times as you like over the year so you really are getting such great value for money. *****

great experience for all history/tank lovers This was my first visit to The Tank Museum after almost a year delay. It was a great experience and I will definitively come back at some point. Beautiful displays and so many tanks from different time periods. Tanks in action display was also very nice, one would wish it would last longer and see more tanks "in action". Only downside was staffing issues that lead to conservation centre not being open, but I can see that on my next visit..

Fantastic museum and value This museum is incredible if you have the slightest interest in the history of the war and these impressive and immense machines and their development. Kids can’t break them either!!

Humbling experience I haven't been here for 30 years, what a wonderful display throughout. Without glorifying war, the displays depict the evolution of modern armoured warfare. The lives and stories of some true heroes, and the horrors and atrocities that all sides suffer during war. A credit to the team behind the museum, truly humbling experience.
