Tanks in Action Crew Day1 August 2023

This event has sold out for 2023. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to be put on the interest list.

Open to just one participant per day, the Tanks in Action Crew Day Experience will place you behind-the-scenes in The Tank Museum Workshop and a ride in a Main Battle Tank during the Display.

This experience is the perfect day out for the tank or engineering fan. 

As well as riding in a historic vehicle during a Tanks in Action display, the recipient will assist crews in mechanical preparation work in The Tank Museum’s Restoration Workshop. You’ll get to explore behind-the-scenes in our workshop facilities and Vehicle Conservation Centre, and receive a deep-dive into the history of armoured warfare with a private tour of the Tank Story Hall, the Museum’s flagship exhibition. If you love tanks, this is the experience for you!
