The collection has brought every member of the Tiger tank family together in one display, in a world first, since spring 2017. However, it will end on November 3 to allow for redevelopment of the World War Two Hall.

The collection was opened by German veterans who fought in these beasts and British veterans who were given the difficult task of fighting them during the war. It has been a big hit, with visitors coming from around the world to see the line-up.

Until January 2019 the collection had the Elefant Jadgpanzer as a guest star, which was on loan from the US Ordnance Training and Heritage Center at Fort Lee, USA. This Elefant is one of just two surviving examples of the 91 built.

Museum Curator David Willey said: “The exhibition, very kindly supported by World of Tanks, brings the world’s only running Tiger I, two King Tigers, a Jagdtiger, a virtual reality Sturmtiger, and until January the extremely rare Elefant, together in one impressive collection.

“Getting up close with this infamous collection of armour truly provides perspective on the scale of these vehicles, especially when compared to the Allied vehicles in the exhibition: the Sherman ‘Fury’ and T34/76. This really does show what the men facing these monsters were up against.”

Tiger Day 12 on September 14 will provide visitors with a chance to experience a full day of Tiger tank related activities, including Tiger 131 in action in the Museum’s arena, alongside its World War Two contemporaries. It is also a great opportunity to see the Tiger Collection before it ends.
