Bovington Tank Museum

We have just spent an afternoon at Bovington Tank Museum in Bovington, Dorset. I went reluctantly in February for the first time. I have absolutely no interest in military (I come from a military background and have seen my fare share of beat and retreats and tanks) So when I arrived I thought I would be bored out of my mind.  How wrong can you be? It is a great day out for all the family. It costs £12 and £7.50 for 5-16 yr olds'

The boy's just ran around looking at the tanks and the size of them, the power etc. I just spent my time reading about how and why  they were made. The videos documentaries are excellent, really informative and child and mummy friendly.

The stories of heroism and bravery brought a tear to my eye!
