Tanks a lot

The Museum of American Armor at Old Bethpage Village Restoration will present a face-off of World War II-era tanks this coming Labor Day weekend.

The legendary Sherman tank and M18 Hellcat will maneuver against a German armor, and a replica of the Tiger tank, one of the most feared weapons on the World War II battlefield, will be on display at the event on Saturday, Aug. 31 and Sunday, Sept. 1 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Other armor in operation will include a Cold War U.S. M48 Patton tank, an amphibious U.S. Marine LVT Amtrac used to attack Japanese occupied islands, a British Bren Carrier and a broad range of other historic military vehicles.

The program is made possible, in part, through the support of PSEG Long Island, Squad Security, Polimeni International, Bethpage Federal Credit Union, BDG, Ltd., Bristal Assisted Living, and the Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation and Museums.

The Museum of American Armor is located inside the Old Bethpage Village Restoration at 1303 Round Swamp Road. Admission donations are $13 for adults, $8 for seniors and veterans and children between the ages of 5 and 12. For more information visit the museum’s website at
