Report for Duty to the REME Museum this Autumn
Uncover the fascinating history of military engineering at the REME Museum in north Wiltshire. Named a VisitEngland Hidden Gem three years in a row, this modern army museum is fully accessible, COVID-safe and ready to welcome you back for Autumn 2021.
The British Army's Secret Weapon
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-the-scenes viewings of rarely-seen treasures from their extensive archive.
