Half Term Hits: Bovington Tank Museum



First published in News

EXPLORE the world’s best collection of tanks and learn all about D-Day this half-term.

Next Friday, June 6, marks the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings and to commemorate, The Tank Museum at Bovington is focusing its half-term activities on this incredible operation.

The museum has one of the biggest collections of tanks and armoured vehicles that saw service during this period of the war and as you explore keep a look out for the fascinating vehicles that go by the collective name of Hobart’s Funnies.

Children can get free entry to the museum this half-term by downloading and completing a Wordsearch and bringing it on the day.

There are opportunities to climb in a tank, try on uniforms and enjoy family trails - all indoors. And don’t miss the Tanks in Action Displays at 2pm.

Tracked vehicle rides are from 11am to 4pm and visitors can take part for £3.

The Tank Museum Volunteer Modellers are displaying some of their work and passing on tips.

Don’t miss the major new exhibition, From Warhorse to Horsepower, which takes visitors through replicas of the First World War trenches as it tells of the suffering endured by horses in battle.

The exhibition took two years to create and it’s hoped the interactive displays will help children learn more about the war.
