Get a Virtual Tour For Free: The Tank museum has worked with Google to offer a free Street View tour of part of the museum. This allows virtual visitors to “walk” around the vehicles and artefacts on display. On a mobile you will probably need to use the Google Earth app to obtain Street View. On a laptop or desktop you should be able to use just Google Maps.
