Welcome to the Norfolk Tank Museum

Sorry closed for the winter.


Situated in the idyllic Norfolk countryside by the ancient Tas Valley Way is our small, independent museum of Cold War militaria.  The Collection, started by Stephen MacHaye in 1987, contains four Main Battle Tanks, armoured personnel carriers and an impressive arsenal of small arms, military memorabilia and uniforms. Enjoy a hands-on experience during the unique opportunity to climb inside a Chieftain MBT, experience a ride around our off-road track and see other vehicles during their expert renovation by the museum team.  An exciting and informative day out for all the family.  The Norfolk Tank Museum is a not-for-profit organisation, all money raised is spent on the continuing refurbishment and modernisation of our grounds and the restoration and expansion of our  Collection.


We offer a range of children and adults parties, all of which can include a ride in a tracked vehicle and/or swim!

We can be hired for private functions i.e. corporate events, proms and weddings.

“A great time had at the Norfolk Tank Museum. Stephen and his team are very welcoming and knowledgable. Plenty to keep you interested and more to come. The restorations are very well researched and carried out. I look forward to visiting again. I also spent some time talking with Stephen about my time serving with 32 Armoured Engineer Regiment where I commanded Cent AVRE 165’s, Chieftain AVRE (both Willich and CHAVRE) and Cheiftain AVLB.”

The Norfolk Tank Museum is always looking for volunteers to help with the restoration of the collection and the running of museum.  The museum also runs a ‘Tank Club’ on Monday and Thursday evenings and new members are always welcome,  for more information contact Stephen 07703 337714.
