  • The Museum has a selection of medieval and modern weapons, armatures. The walls are covered with coats of various families, because the owner of the Museum is an expert in Heraldry and invites all visitors to get to know more about its origins explaining every detail of the coat of arms of their families. He built and expanded your Castle stone by stone and talks about plans for future expansion with even more armor.

  • Okay the guy built it himself, his merit, but say it's a medieval Museum is very out of breath could be "the heraldica Museum" or "cutlery Museum" or even "the knife", that would make sense. Lacking armor, medieval weapons with date and location reference (very mixed and are unidentified, a general confusion), period costumes, furniture and many other things. And the absurdity of exposing film swords (those who bought on the open market) and amazingly, knives. In short. For those who really understand or enjoy the medieval medievalism, the Museum is a disappointment. And the price? A stab of 25 reais to view or 50 m 2 of Museum (since only the part is released to the public.

  • Look I was surprised with the items in the Museum. For those who like cutlery and medieval articles, it's worth it. The tbm face makes and sells family crests. Very cool. Built the Castle alone.

  • Ótimo lugar. Recomendo
  • Muito bacana para quem se interessa por facas e espadas, bem como pela história dos sobrenomes e brasões das famílias. Arquitetura boa também. O melhor é ficar batendo papo com o dono, criador e responsável pelo museu, aí sim a visita vai longe... Poderia ter mais ramos de objetos, como outras armas, instrumentos de tortura, etc... Valor de entrada é 20 reais e compensa para quem gosta do tema.
  • O local é interessante. Porém, fiquei um tanto decepcionado. Eu esperava uma exposição maior, não podia fazer registro fotográfico no local e para encomendar o brasão demorava cerca de 1 mês para ser entregue. As lembranças vendidas estavam com o valor alto.
  • A visita vale mais pela história de um sonho do Sr. Gilberto de ter esse castelo, e pela paixão que ele tem por esse trabalho de manter ali.Para quem gosta de história, heráldica e cutelaria, o Sr. Gilberto irá apresentar bastante coisas além de seu acervo.
  • Lugar encantador, os proprietários cuidam tudo com muito amor e carinho.
