    Munster German Tank Museum

     

    Entering the museum, the visitor embarks on a journey through German military history. An orange thread serves as a guide through the exhibition. The museum documents the development of German armoured troops in the 20th century. The permanent exhibition of the museum comprises about  6,000 exhibits in 5 halls.

     

    The halls have an area of around 10,000 m2 and contain 150 major exhibits: tanks, guns and vehicles dating from 1917 until today. There are many smaller exhibits such as uniforms, medals, weapons, unarmoured vehicles, radios and military toys. In the outdoor area, the walk-in Leopard 1 tank allows visitors to experience the feeling of confinement inside a tank and to understand the importance of cooperation among the crew.

     

    But it's not just about technology: the cultural and historical implications of the objects shown in the Tank Museum are explored and interpreted. The Tank Museum not only aims to inform but also to stimulate questions and the critical examination of German history, particularly German military history.

     

    Object of the Month

    A (short) story is presented for a particular exhibit: the Object of the Month. These normally involve unusual objects and their interesting background stories.
