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).

The Armeria Reale (Royal Armery) is full of impressive dressed- for-battle horses, suits of armour and a big room devoted to the housing hundred of guns. Beautifully presented. Don't miss it!

We had visited the Palace and this was the natural follow on from that visit. Breathtaking amount of armour and weapons in there from way back in history and very well laid out. The sheer amount of exhibits was amazing. We had thought it can't be that big and won't take us that long to get around, it wasn't huge... More

After visiting The Palazzo Reale we came to the Armeria Reale, looked at each other and said we are not particularly keen on armour so perhaps we should go for a coffee. Luckily we decided to have a quick look and that saved us from making a big error. Yes, there is armour plus weapons aplenty but they are all... More
