  • My sons (10, 12) wanted to go here and so we went. We took a fantastic tour (German) with a very knowledgeable guide who told us about the evolution of tanks from WWI until today. There are mostly Ger...  more »
  • Was there with my girlfriend who has been tank soldier and posted several times. It was very interesting to see the many types of tanks. My boyfriend was, of course, wildly overjoyed. We spent at least 3 hours

  • Tickets for purchases made in a lipunmyyjältä at the same time, audio guide, which is available for free in the deposit. The Museum can be found in one of Europe's largest collections of the armored vehicle, so off to book a great time.

  • A huge array of well maintained and presented exhibit. Tanks are not fenced in (except a Tiger), you could actually touch them (not sure if you should though). Because of this, you could easily spend hours studying all the details. So get there early in the morning, or you'd be forced to leave at the end of the day still wanting more like I did.
  • A well laid out collection of Panzers and other assorted vehicles. The collection lays out the history of the tank and its development from inception to current deployments. There are also some operating units on Sure, as well as some which are still in the "project" phase. A scale model panzer club also uses the grounds with free outdoor demonstrations of their motorized models.
  • Panther, Tiger, Tiger 2, Brummbär, Krupp Protze, Hummel, Pz3...Pz4... PaK 8.8...
  • An excellent collection of (mostly) German AFVs. I was mainly interested in the WWI period and was not disappointed. Maybe 50% of the collection is post 1945. TIp, visit early when it's less crowded and a lot easier to get photographs
  • Very nice tank collection. You can get into leopard 1 tank in loader position.
