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 HRH Prince Philip: REME's Colonel-in-Chief The recent passing of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh has a particularly sad resonance for REME, as Prince Philip was the Corps’ Colonel-in-Chief for over fifty years. This temporary exhibition, opening in December 2021 and running into the New Year, explores the Duke’s long relationship with REME by displaying material from the Museum’s large collection. It is very fitting that the Duke is once thought to have said, “Everything that wasn’t invented by God was invented by an engineer.” The above banner depicts a photograph of HRH Prince Philip driving a FV434 Armoured Repair Vehicle, November 1976 on a visit to the BAOR. Recent exhibitions Members of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers have been excelling at sport since the Corps was formed in 1942. REME Sport, Past and Present looked at historical sporting success alongside recent achievements across a range of disciplines, having launched in appropriate sporting fashion with an Olympic style torch relay around MOD Lyneham. 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.
