“One of the world's premier collections of historical armour”

The House of Savoy's armour and arms collection fills two grand halls and is truly magnificent. The highlights include complete armours from Giovanpaolo Negroli, Pompeo Della Cesa and Kolman Helmschmied. Unfortunately, the documentation is not at the level these stunning works of art and craftsmanship would deserve. Your visit might be more rewarding if you speak Italian since only some of the items are briefly explained in English; for instance, expect a showcase full of Negroli masterpieces described only in Italian. Nevertheless, Armeria Reale alone is more than worth buying the ticket that also includes the Royal Palace, Sabauda Gallery and the Archeological Museum.

Centuries of armor and weapons (and stuffed horses) that are very well displayed and superbly maintained.

I strongly recommend you to come here if you like history and if you like all the stuff related to Middle Ages.

This palace museum is opulence extreme. Every room is ornate to the point of saturation. You could spend an entire day in the armory, if that is your taste - beautiful collection. Worth the trip.

A veritable collection of armour and weapons spanning seven centuries and several continents started by King Carlo Alberto in 1837. Pride of place is given to his stuffed horse which stand among cases of guns and swords.
