Fodor's Review

This museum located in a Georgian building used by the Royal Navy since 1771 to store weapons and ammunition explores the history of warfare at sea with interactive touch-screen exhibits on naval armaments, from cannonballs to mines, missiles, torpedoes, and even a decommissioned nuclear bomb. Reached by water bus from the Historic Dockyard, the museum also tells the story of the local people who manufactured the weapons.
