A comprehensive display, showing the evolving development of weapons, from bayonets to machine guns, and the auxiliary paraphernalia surrounding them, from field kitchens to communication technology. All in a warren of tunnels beneath the parapets, which themselves give a good view of the harbor.

My father served here and so it was of interest to me. There are no guided tours so you are left to walk around on your own. Interesting artifacts but nothing of great interest. The views for the top are what make the entrance fee...More

This place is occupied by the army, and they allow visitors. Admission is €3 - very reasonable for an attraction which takes at least an hour to explore. On admission you are given a badge to wear round your neck. The first thing we did...More
