Thun. Panzermuseum
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

... last October, an updated version of the Tank Museum Brochure was published. Size A4. On 75 pages every tank is described and you'll also get an introduction of the tanks in the Swiss Army. Sorry, German ONLY.

Price is just CHF 5 plus postage, available at www.armeemuseum.ch/index.php?id=27

... anyone who's planning to come to Switzerland, there's a big Event on 21. + 22. October 2016 in Thun called "Thun meets Army". Patrouille Swiss will be flying and there will be a tank parade and lots of displays.

Have a look on the Facebook site:

As for Thun, as far as I remember it's not accessible on weekends, only on normal working days.



Correct, Thun is closed on weekends as it's an active army base and not a museum.

But you can also visit on Saturday morning this Museum in Wildegg, ca. 40min south of Full-Reuenthal and only open once a month: www.militaermuseumwildegg.ch

Thanks to this thread I'm heading to Full and Thun this weekend! Road trip! I'm in Munich so it's a 4 hr (or so...) drive (heck I used to drive 5 hrs to BATUS to see an Open House). I really didn't know much about these places until I saw them here.


I was planning to visit Full on Saturday, May 2nd. I would love to meet you there. Let me know what's you schedule and if you think we could arrange something.

As for Thun, as far as I remember it's not accessible on weekends, only on normal working days.

Feel free to contact me by private message if you like.

You might find these write-ups useful (with a nod to Massimo Foti for most of the photos):

Preserved Tanks in Switzerland

For example, both collections have tanks in locations other than the main display areas.
