Tiger 131 is one of only a handful of Tiger I tanks still in existence and the Tank Museum has taken great efforts to keep it running. The Engine is currently away being restored and in the meantime the Museum has decided to investigate any damage caused by running it. This YouTube video museum curator David Willey discusses the work conducted so far.
Tiger 131 has been temporarily removed from public display and towed to the Museum’s workshop, whilst this detailed investigation work is carried out. Daily tours will enable visitors to see the tank but only on a first come first served basis.
