Weaponry & uniforms collection


This is one of the largest and most important collections of weapons in Switzerland, with specimens dating from the High Middle Ages to the mid-20th century. The collection comprises mainly weapons of war (collection of the Zurich Armoury), but also includes non-military arms such as those used for display, hunting and sporting purposes.
