TIME is running out for visitors to see the complete Tiger Tank exhibition at Bovington’s Tank Museum.

The Tiger Tank Collection has brought every member of the Tiger family together for the first time.

However, the Elefant tank - on loan from a collection in America - will return home in November so visitors are being encouraged to visit the museum before it leaves.

For some time, The Tank Museum has been rated as one of the top attractions in Dorset. Eighty per cent of reviewers have awarded the attraction with a 5* review - and it is among the top ten highest rated history museums in the country.

Museum director Richard Smith said: "TripAdvisor tells us what our customers really think, and we learn a lot from what people have to say about the exhibitions, collections and our customer service

"We've worked hard for, and are proud of, our position as the highest rated attraction in Dorset.

“The glowing reviews we have received show we are a museum that brings its subject to life - entertaining, educating and moving visitors from across the world."

Visitors are also being urged to attend talks on the First World War from historians David Fletcher MBE and Stephen Pope to mark the centenary of the armistice.

On Wednesday (Oct 24), visitors will have the chance to learn more about the men who fought during the Great War and what plans were made for the war to continue into 1919.

A museum spokesman explained: “As well as this unique exhibition, there are family-friendly activities taking place every day inside the museum and the 1pm Tanks in Action display every weekday.

“Visitors can ride in a real tracked-vehicle and children can also let off steam in the outdoor play area and in the new inside soft play area, adjacent to the museum’s café.”
