Wareham, Dorset

Heroes big or small can find fun at The Tank Museum.

Guaranteed to stop you in your tracks and tonnes of fun for all the family, the world-class Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset is home to almost 300 vehicles. You can even see the world’s first ever tank – the Tiger Tank. Be in awe of the heavy artillery as you explore six powerful exhibitions spanning 100 years from the ‘Trench Experience’ to ‘Battlegroup Afghanistan’. Seasonal live Tank Action displays take place in the outdoor arena where visitors can even find out for themselves how it feels to ride in a tracked vehicle.

You can also visit the family-friendly Discovery Centre and Activity Zone.
