War at Sea

Explosion! Priddy’s Hard Naval Armament Museum

Housed in an historic 18th-century complex, Explosion! tells of how the British Navy developed and used weaponry through the ages – a story which revolves around the Museum’s internationally significant collections of naval armaments.

The approach throughout is ‘hands-on’, from taking aim at a heaving battleship to dodging submerged mines on the ocean floor.

Extraordinary objects, personal memories, interactivity and unexpected connections combine to deliver a compelling visit.
