In addition to the excellently presented armor, the museum is concerned with showing an overview of the different types of siege possible in medieval times. Before COVID it was also possible to wear armor to experience the feeling of being a knight!(Hopefully we can do this again as soon as possible) . The museum is small but the ticket includes a walk along the walls for a fair price.

Museo Delle Armature is a little museum located in the charming medieval town of Monteriggioni, in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. It is a small museum in the main square, where you can see some medieval armors. Also, it is a very good place to come with children, because they can disguise themselves, nice.

This museum lot of fun!! You can even try on some of the acutal armor and handle the "weapons." It is pretty small, so it doesn't take that much time. It is worth checking out!

The museum is included in the fee for walking on the castello walls. It's only 3-4 rooms and doesn't provide that much information, but children will like it as they can touch and wear the armor and weapons.

This tiny museum is a fun place to visit before or after you have done the walk along the walls that surround Monteriggioni, as it's included in the 3 euro ticket price. There are medieval weapons and armour on display as well as an interactive section where visitors can try on a metal breastplate or helmet to get an idea of just how heavy these things were and how difficult life as a soldier was back then. There is also a well-stocked gift shop including souvenirs for pilgrims hiking along the Via Francigena and many other gadgets, books, medieval figurines and toys.

Right in the center of village. My children enjoyed the exposition of armor and weapons - the nice thing is, that you can try everything on and gives you the feel, that not everything was easy like in the movies. Also, nice representation of history. Short and sweet.

There are about 5 small rooms here with armor displays and 4 of them have armor pieces that you can touch, hold and photograph yourself with (albeit with small wires still attached) including chain mail, shield, sword, cross bow, helmet etc. A lot of fun for kids and adults alike. You can buy a combination pass with the wall tickets to save a Euro.

Not a big museum but some very interesting exhibits. A good attraction to be able to wear armour. I was surprised how heavy some of it was.
Worth a look.
