Suitable for Ages: Families

The Fort features a series of underground tunnels leading to the Armstrong disappearing Gun and magazine area where the Museum is housed. There is a focus on early Maori presence in the area (Pa) and the military involvement in the 1880's during the perceived threat from Tsarist Russia. The Armstrong Disappearing Gun was installed in May 1889 and is the only one of its kind working and is still in its original gun pit.
