The Fort was to safeguard the vital link between North and South and to defend the Pass. The weapons were 12-cm howitzers and 5.3-cm canons. Maxim-machine guns, later on 4.7-cm canons, mortars, etc. The museum houses weapons, equipment and uniforms of that period. Video shows and audio recordings illustrate the everyday lives and work of the troops during World War I.
