Very big collection of weapons and armours. the gallery was recently refurbished and it's now on the top. If you like this kind of museum it's a must. Also your children will largely appreciate.

Good display of weaponry and armour shown through the ages. In particular the amount of effort put into creating the personal protection afforded the knights.

You are going through the Palazzo Reale and suddenly you enter the Armeria. It is a room full of various arms and armoury. There seems to be a very large collection of various arms.

Stunning collection! Combined ticket gets you in to Palazzo Reale, Armeria Reale, Galeria Sabauda and Archeological Museum - all for 12euro. Royal Armoury is the highlight from all of it. Check the opening times when you buying tickets.

A wonderful collection! Quite a stunning collection of armaments etc and armour. A real surprise was discovering that the horses on which the models plus armour were sitting were made from wood and covered in real horses skin!

This is my favourite part of the Palazzo Reale, a wonderful display of soldiers on horseback. It's quite regal as you walk through the long hall. This is included in a ticket to the Palazzo.

This is a fantastic collection of weapons and armour from all over the world from the middle ages to end of 19th century and in conjucnction with the palace makes a most interesting visit the best part was that upon production of evidence i.e passports it was completly free to over 65s (there has to be some perk)

Worth the visit even it you're not a weapons aficionado. When you turn the corner in the palace and see this gallery it is amazing. There are a few electronic kiosks in the room that provide additional info (in English or Italian).
