Tank, Back to the Future

Exhibition on 1000 years of armoured warfare comes to The Tank Museum

The Tank Museum is displaying a temporary exhibition called ‘Tank, Back to the Future’.

Tank, Back to the Future

Closing 25 January 2019

Through a series of models, the new exhibition explores the failed designs of armoured vehicles throughout history. Firepower, protection and mobility, the design principles of armoured vehicles are examined and the display looks at doomed tank experiments like the Tsar Tank and the Da Vinci tank.

The exhibition goes on to cover the eventual success of the British Mark I tank design, which went onto the battlefield in September 1916, as well as tank design beyond the First World War and into the nuclear age.

‘Tank! Back to the Future’, comes to The Tank Museum from the National Military Museum of Netherlands and will run for one year from spring 2018.
