Make sure you have the right ticket with you on your visit to The Tank Museum.

An Annual Pass allows you to visit The Tank Museum as many times as you want for one year (excluding Special Event days). Every full price admission ticket purchased (including Access All Areas, Special Event and Experience Days) automatically comes with an Annual Pass. Discounted tickets (for example Group Tickets and Complimentary tickets) do not include an Annual Pass.
In 2022, the Special Event days are 23 April, 24-26 June, and 17 September.
If you require a carer to facilitate your visit, one carer will be admitted free of charge. If booking online, please book an additional free slot for your carer.
You may be asked to present evidence to a member of staff on arrival (e.g. DLA or PIP letter, GP letter or similar).

To apply for a complimentary ticket for your fundraising event, email [email protected] with your request. Each year, we give over £10,000 worth of tickets to other registered charities based in Dorset. Due to the volume of requests we receive, we are not able to respond to any requests except those which have been successful.
*TANKFEST and Tiger Day. Tanks in Action Display days are not counted as a Special Event day.
Dogs, except assistance dogs, are not permitted inside The Tank Museum. Please do not leave your dog inside your car – there is no shade in the car park. Furthermore, there are currently no suitable spots for securing your pet outside of the building at present. Regrettably therefore, we do not recommend bringing your dog on your visit to the Museum.
