If you're a history lover and enjoy seeing old swords, guns and other weapons, this is worth the visit. It's not the best museum I've been to, but it's great anyway. Also, the view down to the valley and the rest of the town is...More

This museum is housed in the 2nd tower and has weapons from other regions as well as San Marino. It is very interesting and well displayed. Some of the pieces are very well preserved. We thoroughly enjoyed glimpsing this bit of history.

Whenever one goes in San Marino, all places witnessed the ancient years which are important to understand the history of this small Republic. Museum of modern Arms is one of them, however the exhibition seems to be, not very modern.

Located close to the first tower, you surely wont miss it if you are about to start your journey to all three towers. It is all about the Modern weapons.

This museum is worth visiting if time permits. It has a good collection of the arms. Get a combined passed for 5 sites at a reduced price when visiting this and the 2 towers, etc.

I liked this museum a lot. It shows all kinds of arms, guns, pikes and swords. Some are very special like the backward shooting gun.

A small but nicely laid out museum with both ancient weapons and a nice sampling of unusual weapons that predate WW2. There are information cards in three languages. There is even a cabnet of clever fakes and knock offs that are just as interesting as...More
