Museum-Arsenal, Lviv

4.5
#2 of 17 in Museums in Lviv
The City Arsenal is the oldest of three historic arsenal buildings in Lviv, Ukraine. The other two are the Royal Arsenal and Sieniawski Arsenal. It is a rectangular two-storey structure with a miniature octagonal tower on the north side. The building, in its present shape, was erected in 1554–56 above a 14th-century structure of unknown function. It was formerly attached to the city walls and featured a torture chamber. The arsenal building was blown up by the Swedes during the Great Northern War but was subsequently restored. At present it houses an armoury museum.

  • Great Hall on the first floor full cabinets with a weapon. The weapon badly described, or not at all as described-poorly lit-disappointed, though I saw a few pieces of interesting and beautiful white weapons.

  • We stumbled in on a whim, and yes it was a bit fascinating but i don't really understand the appeal. Some of the info was in Ukrainian only. Could have been clearer and better organised.
  • If you love old guns and history, you need to visit this place.
  • Good place to go visit of you have few days in Lviv
  • Interesting place with big collection of different ages weapons. Drawbacks are a bit of cold during a winter time and exhibits messly sorted.
  • If youre shield-armor-weapon lover, you must see it.

Where to stay in Lviv

Although many visitors to Lviv stay near the relatively expensive town center, the city offers plenty of budget-friendly options within walking distance of this central district. Guesthouses and small hostels provide simple but tidy rooms with luggage storage and free Wi-Fi. Alternatively, look for mid-range hotels near public bus stops, where you'll have quick access to the major sights at considerably less cost than the centrally located boutique hotels.
