Annual tank museums conference.

18th October 2019

The Tank Museum hosted a conference this week for its museum counterparts from across Europe and North America.

National tank and armour museums, which are publicly funded, meet on a yearly basis to discuss opportunities and challenges which they are facing within the sector.

Curator David Willey said, “This kind of collaboration allows organisations like ourselves to get together, learn from each other and make sure we’re all working as well as we can to look after a series of incredible collections of armoured vehicles.”

In attendance this year are colleagues from Sweden, France, the Czech Republic, the USA, the Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Belgium, Canada, Austria and Spain.

Throughout the week, topics such as conservation, restoration, collection development, merchandising and Museum online marketing will be covered in a series of talks and workshops.
