We are a charity set up to preserve, restore and maintain historic military vehicles from both world wars, and to educate the public about their history. Our unique line-up of rare and important military vehicles, including tanks and other armoured fighting vehicles is considered to be one of the finest working collections in the world.
We are a charitable institution where schools, engineers, historians, modellers, enthusiasts and collectors come together to discover and learn.
We are not a museum. We are a working collection.
We source original components and where necessary, create new parts from the original blueprints or examples.
Our research into the history of every vehicle in our collection – where and when it was assembled, its role in combat and the story of the people who operated them or fought against them - provides unique authenticity to our work.
We receive no UK government funding so our work in restoring vehicles and creating a centre of technical and historical excellence depends on support from you.
