Bronze Burmese dragon

Art of Artillery

For many centuries, guns were royal and national status symbols. They were expensive to make; and even including some decoration in the design did not add greatly to the final cost.

But sometimes an especially splendid gun was required for propaganda or decorative purposes; some of which are on display here.


Throughout half term week there will be an assortment of activities for all the family which will bring history to life.
