Margin Icon Visit the Museum

The REME Museum tells the exciting story of the Corps of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, from their foundation in 1942 to their work today. We provide a unique interactive experience for all ages. Learn about the history of the Corps and listen to the stories of those who have served. See large armoured recovery vehicles, medals, uniforms and weapons across eight modern galleries.

We suggest 2 hours to explore the galleries, but remember to leave time to visit Crown’s Café for something to eat and drink.

Not only does the Museum have a large car park, but we are also easily accessible by public transport. All parts of the Museum are on ground level and there are no steps to climb.

There is no need to bring ID to visit the Museum or Crown’s Café as the Museum lies outside the perimeter of MOD Lyneham.
