Tiger 131 Restoration Update

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.


  1. By far one of my favourites tanks of all time.

  2. Another great post. I for one was not sure there was an original Tiger running! Given that most film images are some sort of mock-up.



Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
