Lonely Planet review
This small museum has an impressive collection of arms and armour, some from the 16th century. However, what makes this museum worth a visit is the dazzling array of gold and silver swords and daggers, including a khanjar (ceremonial dagger) that belonged to Lawrence of Arabia. The museum is open to the public by prior appointment or with a tour guide.
