Establishing a weapons museum at the Arsenal was a no-brainer for city planners. It’s a brisk walk up the hill, but the fascinating array of swords, daggers, spears, lances, fire-arms, armour and other military equipment make the climb well worth it. The collage of locally crafted weapons and armour really stirs the imagination. The museum has also acquired samples of ancient weapons from around the world. Chronologically organised by weapon type, you’ll have no problems finding your own way around and your whacky uncle will definitely spring at the chance to be photographed in authentic knight’s armour.
