The Tank Museum is committed to a policy of accessibility, providing excellent access in and around the site.
For a full description of our facilities, please download our Access Statement here.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding accessibility at 01929 405096.
If you require a carer to facilitate your visit, one carer will be admitted free of charge. If booking online, the carer’s ticket does not need to be purchased in advance.
You may be asked to present evidence to a member of staff on arrival (e.g. DLA or PIP letter, GP letter or similar).
There is ample disabled parking on hard standing near to the entrance of the Museum.
The majority of the museum is on a single level, with ramps or lifts providing access to higher floors. Pathways and entrances are broad, and there are several disabled toilets around the Museum.
There are wheelchair access points and viewing areas in our arena.
There are a limited number of wheelchairs available for use at the Museum, which are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
There are hearing induction loops on our newer interactives and subtitles on video content.
The Trench Experience and War Horse to Horsepower exhibition do use sound effects which can trigger sensory overload.
The Museum’s Special Events and rainy days during the school holidays are both very busy. If you would like to visit at a quieter time, we would recommend either a week day in term-time or on a sunny day in the holidays. Please call 01929 405096 for recommendations or more information.
The Tank Museum welcomes working dogs, including Guide dogs, Hearing dogs and Support dogs. These must be kept on a lead and accreditation may be required.
