The Armoury

The Armoury houses the Heugh Battery Museum's collection of de-activated weapons, items of uniform and other artifacts.  

The Armoury is only opened for visitors by volunteers or museum staff so that visitors are able to ask questions about the exhibits and handle some of the objects in the room.  If you are visiting and fing that the door to the armoury is locked, please ask at reception and a volunteer or staff member will come and open it up for you.
