Museum of Artillery in the Rotunda
This building was originally a large bell-tent erected in St James's Park in 1814 for a special exhibition. It was moved to its present location six years later where its architect, John Nash, constructed a permanent lead roof and central supporting pillar.
Sadly, the building is no longer open to the public (most of the Rotunda's collections are now on display in the Firepower Museum) but group visits can occasionally be accommodated.
