This museum seems to have one of everything.
Well displayed and not on top of each other.
When “exiting thru the gift shop” watch out for books in English, German and French.
The catalogue of the museum is very well done with two pages to...More
My German friend took my 12 year old son and Me to the Tank Museum.
My son and I do not read German and lots of information is sadly in German only.
However, there are free English audio stations for some of the exhibition, as...More
If you are interested in military history this place has a lot to offer. There are many, many vehicles to see and in great condition too. We were even told several of the old classics are drivable. There selection includes both old and modern vehicles...More

My son who is interested of military history absolutely loved to visit here. There are so many tanks to see in many halls. They also have weaponry, uniforms and other curiosities on display. The Staff was friendly and there is also a small museum shop...More
This museum is great. Such a massive collection of tanks and warfare-related artifacts from WWI through the present! And all very well put-together and informative. Definitely a must-see for anybody interested in military vehicles.
About a three hour visit. For english visitors especially ask for an audio guide, they are not offered, you need photo I.d. ie drivers licence and are in german or english. Whilst most specifications are in english much of the exhibition is not, so they...More
We did a family visit 24 October this year. DPM being a real must must-have, as we have been to Saumur MDB in France twice, Bovington TTM as many times and various others such as Duxford's excellent Tank based displays (..well kept secret!).
This was my friend's favorite museum in Germany and his second visit. While this is not exactly my cup of tea, I actually enjoyed myself. Interesting photo opportunities. Great collection of tanks from different countries and engagements. Very well laid out and fine gift shop.

Wouldn't advice that - it's a 5 hour train trip from cologne, including 21 min walk. It's a 4hr car drive from Cologne, (from my hometown 6 so I made a weekend stay of it, combining with Bergen-Belsen concentration camp). There's a pretty good-priced Best Western hotel at about a half hr car drive of the museum that mostly has available rooms. I'd advice a stay some where in the region for a night.
