A world war 1 and 2 fort, a nuclear bunker, 3 mountable artillery guns on the top and eerie, a realistic underground world war 2 bunker and details about that period in history. If you’re in Weymouth, you must go here.

The whole magazine level is filled up with history exhibitions one after another. And with sparse recreations of the army’s daily...More
