MUSEUM OF ANCIENT ARMS

The Museum displays part of the rich armoury collection acquired by the State between 1956 and 1972.

The exhibition route consists of four rooms and shows the development of “sidearms” and “firearms” with exhibits of great historical value ranging from armours, bills and halberds, wheel-lock, flintlock and fuse firearms to the experimental weapons of the 1800s transition and the breech-loading arms of the late 19th century.
