What is the Royal Armouries Museum?

The Royal Armouries is a museum in Northern England that Eric Knows makes it easy to find.

A huge gallery that is free to enter, The Royal Armouries contains exhibits of arms and armour that have been used across the world, both in the past and the present. Furthermore, it is not just a gallery, with regular events and live demonstrations of activities such as jousting. The Royal Armouries’ website holds more information on bookings and what events are on.

Additionally, the displays that the Royal Armouries holds are beautiful in terms of both their content and arrangement. For instance, beautifully crafted armour is displayed, and many of the sword exhibits feature fan-like arrangements. Also, the image of a helmet used in this listing is in fact one of their exhibits, previously belonging to Henry VIII, and the museum now uses its terrifying visage as a logo. The museum’s collection page holds records of the upwards of 60,000 objects in their collection.
