    Default Tank Museum....England

    Hi

    I expect most of you are aware of the Tank Museum in the south of England but for those of you who aren't take a look :

    Welcome to the Tank Museum - Home of the Tank - Welcome to the Tank Museum - Home of the Tank



    It is in the process of being enlarged and will be finished soon, my father works there so and I visit him there occasionally, it's worth a look if you are in the area as the place is full of stuff including a recently renovated and running Tiger.If anyone wants pictures of specific items or info let me know but please be patient as it may be some months before I am there again..

    Bovington beats the crap out of Aberdeen Proving Ground and Fort Knox, in my humble opinion, especially on WWI armor (or armour).

    You are correct sir. I have been to both Aberdeen and Knox. One thing about Aberdeen though, where else can you climb in and on an original german piece of armor? My last trip I lifted the hatch on a Jagtiger and climbed right in. Pretty cramped in there but man I got some tremendous pictures. I get to Aberdeen a few times a year and always enjoy the visit.
    Knox is cool too. The Tiger II is really worth the visit.
