We also have a unique collection of Centurion tanks: an AVRE; a Mk13 Gun Tank and an ARV, these are on static display most of the year, but can be seen in action along with other vehicles on our purpose-built course at Armourfest 11th & 12th August 2018.  Also on static display, with full public access, are a Chieftain Main Battle Tank and a Saladin Armoured Scout Car, you can climb inside and experience the confirmed space

and atmosphere of the crew turret. We have many other vehicles, uniforms and small arms on display.  The Norfolk Tank Museum offers a unique, ‘hands-on’  experience, giving you the opportunity, wherever possible, to have access to and to handle our exhibits. 

Weather permitting you can enjoy a white-knuckle ride over our off-road course in the ‘Hagglunds BV206 All Terrain Vehicle’, and then relax with a coffee and light snack in our tea room.  We have disabled access to all our buildings and dedicated parking spaces.  There is a picnic and children’s play area, and access to local country walks.

Visit us today and try a tank for size!  It’s a great family day out!

If you are local and fancy a volunteering role we are always looking for new people to join our volunteer team.  We welcome everybody, whatever you feel like doing, whether it’s admin, catering, gardening or of course restoration and meeting the public when we are open.  We also run ‘Tank Club’ on Monday and Thursday evenings, 7-10pm, where we restore and maintain the vehicles.  So if you have a penchant for mechanics and love a large engine it might be just what you are looking for!
