The Tank Museum


The Tank Museum



For couples seeking something inimitable, The Tank Museum is among the latest and more unique wedding venues in the South.

A stone’s throw from Dorset’s stunning Jurassic Coast, The Tank Museum holds the world’s finest and most historically...significant collection of tanks. As a registered charity, all revenue is reinvested back into the Museum, to develop our exhibitions and maintain this unique collection for future generations to enjoy.

Our unique surroundings have already attracted couples with a special connection to The Tank Museum, who want to celebrate their marriage with us. Some have links to the military, a keen interest in our subject and others have ties to the local area.

Whether you want a 1940s rustic wedding with an intimate guestlist, or a classic contemporary white wedding design with up to 1000 guests, The Tank Museum’s experienced Events team can help to create a unique day for you. You can even tie the knot in front of your favourite tank!

At The Tank Museum, we believe that every wedding is unique and we therefore have no set packages. Instead, we offer suggestions of how you can use each space and also provide a list of trusted suppliers to assist in designing the day that you desire.
