Specialty Museum Museum
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.

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.

  • 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.
