Explore our national museum housing over 700 pieces of artillery from across the world and spanning 600 years of history. See a 15th-century Turkish bombard cannon, a gigantic 200-tonne railway howitzer and the infamous Iraqi supergun.

With an exciting collection of big guns, stunning panoramic views, entertaining children’s activities, and a café serving delicious refreshments – there is something for everyone to enjoy.
