Inside the Royal Palace there is a very long gallery (with a couple of appended rooms at either end) displaying the varied collection of weapons armour and militaria started by the Savoys in the 19th century. It only takes about 30 minutes to breeze through, longer if you... More

One of the largest weapons collections in the world.

Amazing display of armoury, well worth a visit on its own or as part of the adjoining Royal palace. Never seen anything like it.

Armeria reale is just next to Royal Palace. You could visit them together. The large number of arms are exposed to the eyes of visitors. Enjoy impressive, Kings alive looking horse preserved in its real skin.

Inside the royal palace, just a short walk to get there. It has a large collection of muskets, smooth-bore rifles, pistols, swords, daggers, crossbows and other kinds of historic weapons. Quite impressive.

One of the best armoury display I've seen. Not too big and overwhelming. Great lighting and location too. Worth the trip if you're a fan of how things looked in the past. They have life size standing models of the animals and soldiers from back then. Was great to see the sheer size of the horses and men.

Attached to the Royal Palace, you walk into the Royal Armory seamlessly. The palace it seems was armed to the teeth, you'll find a large collection of rifles, pistols, swords, daggers, crossbows and other kinds of historic weaponry here, most of which were made in a delightfully non-industrial way, with great attention to detail and design.
