The Tiger Collection

The Tiger Collection had a very successful and extended run in the Museum. On Monday 4th November 2019 the exhibition space was dismantled, and vehicles moved to make way for the WWII Hall renovation project. To read a little more about the Collections vehicles, click the link here.
The Tanks from this exhibition and their new locations can be seen below:
  • Tiger I (131) - Tank Story Hall
  • T-34/76 - Tank Story Hall
  • Jadgtiger - Inaccessible to public, January - March 
  • Tiger II (Production) -  Inaccessible to public, January - March

Many apologies for any inconvenience caused. Your patience and understanding as we go through this large scale renovation project is greatly appreciated. Please remember all tickets to the Museum (excluding Group & Complimentary Tickets) include an Annual Pass, allowing you to visit the Museum free of charge for 1 year from the date of first usage.
