A popular Dorset attraction is to hold sign language tours following its success last year.

The Tank Museum has created a welcoming and accessible experience for visitors by introducing British Sign Language (BSL) tours, subtitles on video content and hearing loops on the new exhibitions. Military history fans can dig deeper into the story of armoured vehicles in a format that supports their needs.

Head of Visitor Experience, Rosanna Dean said: “Our BSL tours ensure all our visitors can experience the stories of historically significant tanks, and their crews. Our award-winning accessibility programme means everyone has an equal opportunity to participate and engage with the museum.”

The hour-long tour takes place in the museum’s flagship Tank Story Hall exhibition that 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.

BSL tours are available on March 16 and October 19. Tours are free with every museum ticket and booking is essential.
