THE Tank Museum has announced a British Sign Language tour in October.

Following the success of the first tour last year, the museum at Bovington will offer this service again on Saturday, October 2.

The tour will be made more accessible for those that are hard of hearing, and will include subtitles on video content and hearing loops in newer exhibitions at their Bovington site.

The free tours follow the introduction of quiet mornings, which welcome visitors with sensory needs by turning off sounds and interactives.

The museum has also introduced a wellbeing room, a resting space created for those who want to spend some time away from the crowds.

Visitor experience general manager Rosanna Dean said: “We are delighted with the positive response we received after the last British Sign Language tour, and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors again in October.

“The museum is committed to improving accessibility and our facilities to offer an exceptional visitor experience for all tank fans,” she added.

The hour-long tour will take place in the museum’s flagship exhibition, the Tank Story Hall, which features the 32 most important tanks in the history of armoured warfare, from Little Willie, the first working prototype, to the current main battle tank, Challenger 2.

Tour attendees will also get free entry to the museum, to further explore the collection of 300 armoured vehicles and the powerful exhibitions that bring the story of tanks and their crews to life.

Under-16s can bring one accompanying adult and pre-booking is essential.
