Temporary Exhibitions Visiting our temporary displays is an opportunity to see rarely displayed artefacts and dive into REME stories not featured in the Museum's permanent display spaces. We like to use exhibitions to explore topical themes, newly uncovered history and ideas to get you talking. We change these displays as often as twice a year. Entry is included with admission. To complement exhibitions we host talks and activities. Check our Events page to see what's coming up. Current exhibition One of the first REME cricket teams, assembled for a match in the 1940s, features on the poster for our REME Sport exhibition. Members of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers have been excelling at sport since the Corps was formed in 1942. REME personnel are expert engineers, dedicated to keeping the British Army’s equipment battle ready. Their technical skill and persistence makes them excellent athletes and competitors across a vast range of different sporting disciplines, from karate to kart racing. In 2020 the REME Museum will be hosting an exhibition celebrating this proud history and exciting present. View trophies from forgotten tournaments, rarely displayed photos and antique sporting memorabilia alongside specialised kit used by some of the Corps’ top athletes. It’s been tough to capture more than 75 years of sporting excellence inside just four walls but we’re sure this snapshot will get you talking (and training!). To launch the exhibition, on 29 January 2020, REME personnel will be taking part in an Olympic style torch relay around MOD Lyneham, picking up members of the camp’s 30 plus sports teams before arriving en masse at the Museum. A special VIP sporting guest will open the exhibition and teams will gather for a celebratory photo amongst the Museum’s unique collection of military vehicles. Recent exhibitions As a Training Ground for War explored the links between sport and the armed forces. A collaboration between Sporting Heritage and the Army Museums Ogilby Trust, the display travelled the UK during 2019 before finally visiting the REME Museum in October and November. The Ruined Factory proved so popular we had to extend its run. Examining REME's role kick-starting Volkswagen in the aftermath of the Second World War, this display was enhanced by rare photographs and lectures delivered by staff from the Volkswagen Heritage Department in Wolfsburg. Women have always been a part of the REME story but their role in the Corps has changed over the decades. From highly skilled Wartime radar technicians to Corps Colonel, this display explored the careers and experiences of a group of pioneering Women of REME, past and present. Nowadays, military tattoos are something everyone's talking about but we think we hosted the first exhibition. Captivating photography and poignant personal stories accompanied and examination of the strong links between those who serve and body art. Military Ink really captured public attention, leading to features in the local and national press.
