Please note that Tankfest 2012 is a special event, and requires a Tankfest 2012 ticket for admission. Annual passes may not be used for this event.

*Terms & Conditions apply as follows:
The membership does not entitle the holder to free admission on special event days, such as TANKFEST. The Museum may specify a total of 5 special event days in that 365-day period on which this annual ticket will be exempt. These dates can be found on this website but if you are unsure we recommend that you call ahead of your visit. The event details are updated regularly on our website, so please check the relevant web page or phone the Museum prior to your visit. Tank Action Displays are not counted a special event day. The individual paying the admission fee will be registered as the member, and will be required to be present and to provide proof of identity and a signature for return visits. If you require individual membership for members of your party, you should consider paying separately to enable you to gain return visits independently.
