    Visited arranged long-term financing from Deutsche Panzer Museum. I have heard a lot about it. Onponravilsja than me, is that there posted armoured vehicles, which is lacking in our Museum BTiVT in Kubinka tank Museum. It is a modern armoured vehicles of the Bundeswehr as well as machines for Leopard tank chassis. In addition there personally saw the Israeli Merkava. The Museum is gorgeous. Scored a bunch of souvenirs. The Museum a lot of equipment in the section for submission to the tank and APC. Also in the Museum a large section devoted to the NVA in the GDR times. Interestingly, when you visit the restaurant "Wassermuhlen" upon presentation of tickets at the Museum 10% discount from eaten.

  • 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.
