We have toured a number of museums and castle collections of armory, and this is definitely in the top 10. The exhibits are well-displayed in an interesting location. There is not a lot of English, but for the most part it is possible to understand...More

WHen you visit the castello, these are the two main attraction. You can learn a lot about the weapons - Brescia was famous for good weapon making - and the museum offer a lot. The Risorgimento Museum is like in any other Italian city.

If you like to see some interesting piece of medioeval weaponery, the Brescia castle museum is a must see.

After about an hour one gets tired of seeing racks and racks of armour but it's still pretty spectacular and extensive. Very well managed and full of information. The lack of English signage, however, was a bit off putting for us, but we managed to...More
