Royal Armouries Museum
Royal Armouries Museum ©
This fun, lively museum contains six themed galleries (covering War, Tournaments, Self-Defence, Hunting, Oriental Weaponry and the new and attractive Hall of Steel), and is filled with interactive displays, dramatic interpretations, action scenarios and some really exciting exhibits. This is more a cross between a theme park and a museum, bringing history alive in many unique ways, from watching gun-makers ply their craft to demonstrations of English traditions like falconry and horsemanship. Those interested in weaponry and military history will be thrilled by the extensive collection of the museum and the chance to witness things previously only read about.
