The Tank Museum at Bovington (Dorset) must rank alongside the Imperial war Museum in London as an attraction which anyone with an interest in the subject of warfare and its weaponry, should visit. This museum, provides the most extensive collection of armoured vehicles located in one place that, I certainly, have ever seen. In addition to the tanks, there are other static and interactive exhibits providing detailed information with photographs text and other aids. At the time of this review there is an interactive "walk through" taking the visitor into the recruiting office, through the rail head, past a dressing station and into the trenches.
At first, I thought that the entrance fee was a bit expensive, but after (and during) our few hours at the museum (time passes very quickly) we felt that the fee was worth every penny. The museum also provides a "free pass" for 12 months as part of the entrance fee for those, who like us, intend to visit Bovington again soon to catch up with what we must have missed, as there is so much to see.
There is an excellent restaurant providing meals and snacks, and also a number of smaller facilities for just a drink and a bun if you prefer.
An extensive car park means that there is no problem in finding a space for the car.
All in all a good value, well presented attraction and well worth a visit, (or even more visits).
