The REME Museum

The Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers have been 'keeping the punch in the Army's fist' since 1942.

 

Whether they're recovering a Challenger tank under fire or maintaining an Apache attack helicopter, REME personnel make sure that the Army's cutting-edge kit is battle-ready. The REME Museum boasts eight interactive galleries, featuring everything from rare World War Two recovery vehicles to a tiny toothbrush made by a REME Prisoner of War. Start your tour on the beaches of Normandy then delve into a proud tradition of skill and innovation: from the REME Major who resurrected Volkswagen in post-war Germany to the intrepid mechanic who kept vehicles moving on the crossing of Antarctica expedition. Visit the MoD Lyneham Memorial Garden: a memorial to those fallen servicemen repatriated through RAF Lyneham, located in the Museum's grounds.

 

Exclusive Access for Groups Optional add-ons include a guided tour often with a real REME veteran and behind-thescenes viewings of rarely-seen treasures from their extensive archive. Gain entry to the Museum's private hangar: home to the UK's largest collection of repair and recovery vehicles. Equipped to Welcome You Fuel the troops with a catered lunch or cream tea from Crown's Café, the Museum's onsite eatery. An extra tactical advantage: dedicated coach parking and drop off spots right next to the Museum entrance. Coach drivers get free entry.
