Museum-Arsenal, Lviv

(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very old building but museum is small. Collections are mainly medieval armors and weapons and you can visit all in 5-10 minutes only. 
  • Old weapons and armour are exhibited. Can be had now seen only in painting fantasy games coming out, such as Mace and Saber, was impressed. I think in the place where you can enjoy RPG love. If you take pictures inside the Museum pays the entrance and the camera equipment.
