Learn about the history of German armored troops since 1917 at Deutsches Panzermuseum, originally an officer training school and now a museum focusing on tanks. The 9,000 sq m (97,000 sq ft) site houses a collection of restored and functional East German, German, British, American, and Russian tanks from World War II. Rare specimens include Europe's only authentic replica of a German A7V from World War I and an American M48 Patton tank, which is open to visitors via a flight of stairs.

  • Our son is a huge WWI & tank fan, so despite the museums distance from us, we traveled north to enjoy it. Google said the average time spent was 2,5 hours and that was very true. We arrived a little l...  read more »
  • Even if one (s) is not the "Bundeswehr"person, but the Museum is worth a visit. Interesting information is delivered by the technique, the history, etc. It is also good that you can look at the exhibited objects from all sides, must go not only through prescribed channels.

  • Tossed in the single-line local trains from Bremen 1 time and hey, that 15-minute walk from the station. Panzermuseum is a quiet small town. Went to France Saumur tank Museum in the past, but of course being restored in Saumur is equipped with shovels, hammers, wire so reproduced does not. However, it has been fully reproduced in Munster here. Manifestation of perfectionism of Germany? Tiger I late version is made from scrap is a sight to see. I think it is worth a go if compared to the Saumur Munster pretty local to where I go is hard.

  • It would be nice if the website actually allowed the English version to display. Tried for 45 mins. to make it work and gave up! :(
  • The best tank and engineerinf exhibit bar none. Also, if you're reading this, you might have bought a train ticket to Munster instead of Münster, so you might as well go, there's not much else in town :-)
  • Good for tank lovers! Have a rare A7V! Mostly German tanks, some for other countries.
  • Where ever could you see PzKmpf I - IV, Tiger, Panther and KönigsTiger. And soooo many other tanks between Great War and these days. ONLY THERE.
  • Outstanding display if armored fighting vehicles for 1917 on through present day.
