This was a scheduled stop on our tour for the day. This gun is massive and interesting to see. But, what was most interesting to us were the artifacts that are on display in the Battery rooms below the gun. Take your time going through...More

We visited the 100 ton gun as it was part of the Upper Rock fee which we had already paid, otherwise it was only £1 entrance fee. Although the museum inside was self explanatory, when we went outside to view the gun there was seagull...More

If you are in the neighbourhood of the Magdala battery you may very well visit it. It's a piece of war history in a constantly hot and tense area of Europe. The gun itself is impressive in size. The museum part is explanatory and gives...More

We took the bus to see this '100 ton gun' and were very pleasantly surprised by the exhibition which was cheap to enter and very informative. Plenty to explore for our older children and the gun was very impressive! Slightly off the beaten track but...More
