  • A giant collection of everything related to medieval conventional and ceremonial weapons and armor, historical textiles and some jewelry themes. This collection is amaze in its size and variety. To get around everything without running and have time to enjoy this collection, you will have to spend more than couple of hours. This unique place is simply a must-see, as is the so-called "treasury". These two museums can be described as "You did not live if you did not see it".
