Your first chance to see Tiger 131 in action after its starring role in the Hollywood Blockbuster FURY...

In 2015 Tiger 131 will only make two appearances in our arena; Tiger Day – 2nd May and Tankfest 27th & 28th June. As the only running Tiger 1 tank in the world you really can't afford to miss it!

The Museum will open at 10.00am with a range of World War Two talks and tours taking place throughout the day, including the opportunity to get close to Tiger.

The Vehicle Conservation Centre will be open from 10am – 5pm allowing access to the main floor, this allows visitors unprecedented access to the museum’s extended collection of tanks and other military vehicles.

The highlight of the day will be at 1.30pm, when Tiger 131 makes its return into the Kuwait arena*. The 30 minute display will examine and compare this World War Two beast to its Axis and Allied contemporaries; including Matilda II, Panzer III, T-34 and Sherman. The display will also examine the impact Tiger had on future tank design, with Centurion and Leopard*.

Please note that access to the arena will be solely for those with a valid Museum ticket.

 

*As with all our historic machines, the appearance of the Tiger tank in the display is subject to its mechanical reliability on the day.
