Are you located inside MOD Lyneham?

The Museum lies just outside the perimeter of MOD Lyneham. There is no need to bring ID to visit the Museum or Crown’s Café. We do share an entrance turnoff from the A3102 with the camp's main gate so you can follow signs for the base to find us.

The Museum is fully accessible with disabled parking bays, accessible toilets and step free access throughout. For more information visit our Accessibility page.

Can I climb in the vehicles?

No, you cannot climb on our historic vehicles. Some of them are rare and delicate and we want to make sure future generations can enjoy them.

Do you have a gift shop?

Yes, we've got all kinds of souvenirs, books and gifts. You can also purchase a select range of items from the REME Shop which carries uniform items, REME-branded clothing and bespoke, personalised products.

Where can I get something to eat or drink?

The Museum's onsite cafe, Crown's Café, is the perfect place to grab lunch or a quick coffee during your visit.

If you would prefer to bring a packed lunch, we have picnic benches outdoors at the rear of the Museum. Just ask at the front desk.

You can also purchase refreshments at Tesco or Co-Op, both just 10 minutes’ walk down the road in the centre of Lyneham.

Can I take photos during my visit?

You are welcome to take photos during your visit, as long as they are for personal, non-commercial use.

We ask that you do not use flash so other visitors are not distracted.

If you would like to photograph our vehicles for research or model making, we ask that you contact the Museum ahead of your visit. We also ask that you do not climb on or touch the vehicles.

Can I bring my dog to the Museum?

Dogs are not allowed inside the Museum or in Crown's Café, other than assistance dogs. You are welcome to bring your dog into our outside areas but we ask that you keep them on a lead. We can provide water if needed, just ask.
