Artillery artefacts come out of the dark

Published: Wednesday 15th of October 2008

London's Firepower Royal Artillery Museum is hosting a new exhibition called Out of the Dark, which seeks to reveal some of the lesser-seen artefacts from its archives.

Running until June 28th 2009, the exhibit offers a fascinating insight into some of the rarer, but nonetheless significant items in military history, such as a lock of Napoleon's hair.

This new exhibition takes it inspirations from artillery found across the globe and, appropriately, there are 230 items collected during the museum's 230 year history.

The museum holds more than 3.5 million artefacts and these collection has been carefully selected to show the public the most intriguing pieces that it has acquired over the years, but as yet has not had the opportunity to display properly – until now.

Visitors to the Firepower Royal Artillery Museum can enjoy free entry with their LondonPass, a saving of £5 for adults and £2.50 for children off the full admission price.
