Harrier Jump Jet at the Muckleburgh CollectionThe Muckleburgh Collection is the UK’s largest privately owned military museum with 25 tanks in working order and hundreds of fascinating exhibits on display.

The museum is located three miles from Sheringham on the A149 coast road to Wells-next-the-Sea.

Highlights include the many tanks, aircraft and armoured vehicles, some on display outside and many more located in large indoor galleries.

The galleries also include smaller cabinet displays including detailed dioramas, models and more personal items, such as uniforms, medals and kit-bags.

There are scheduled tank demonstrations and military vehicle rides during the school holidays. The museum also offers a tank driving experience though you will need to check and book this with the museum in advance.

There is ample free parking on site and at time of writing it’s possible to get there by public transport on the Coasthopper bus service.

Other on-site facilities include a café, family picnic area, shop and children’s play area.

The museum is open from 16th to 23rd February (half-term), then from the 5th of April to the 2nd of November. Opening times are from 10:00am to 5:00pm daily.
