  • An outdoor display of past military hardware, well worth a wander around with interesting history attached to the various styles of guns, tanks etc made by a number of countries.  more »
  • Great place to learn about the historical weapons both from hundreds of years ago to the recent and in use. They have deducted tour guides that will accompany you and explain everything and answer any questions. There is also an air rifle shooting range which you can shoot for a small fee. Definitely recommended if you are in the area!
  • This is interesting museum as many heavy weight and light weight weapons used in war can be seen here.even older guns and tanks are placed here to be watched. Coolest part is you can see those heavy guns and armed vehicles for real and you can even see inside of those. a guide provided by museum gives detailed information.there are several weapons captured by L.T.T.E. also from past war. Highly recommend for a visit.
