Museo de Armas information
Even if you’ve spent time in the armed forces, you probably have never seen so many weapons of destruction. This maze-like museum exhibits a frighteningly large but excellent collection of over 3000 bazookas, grenade launchers, cannons, machine guns, muskets, pistols, armor, lances and swords; even the gas mask for a combat horse is on display. The evolution of rifles and handguns is especially thoroughly documented, and there’s a small but impressive Japanese weapons room.
The whole collection is very extensive, impressive, clean and well labeled.
