Explosion Museum

Explosion! Museum of Naval Firepower, is a hands on, interactive museum set in the historic setting of a former gunpowder and munitions depot at Priddy’s Hard, on the Gosport side of Portsmouth Harbour.

Priddy’s Hard was once a busy Naval Armament supply depot that provided the Royal Navy with its ammunition for over two hundred years. Telling the story of naval warfare from the days of gunpowder to modern missiles, the two-hour tour of the museum includes a stunning multi media film show set in the original 18th century gunpowder vault.

Explosion! has a gift shop and waterside coffee shop area, open to non-visitors, so anyone can stop by and enjoy the Camber Dock overlooking the stunning views of the harbour.
