Stibbert Museum – Of knights and samurai

0
The Stibbert Museum is one of the richest collections of ancient weaponry and clothing in the world, with a number of accompanying exhibits. The museum, a rare example of 19th-century museography, was first established inside his own home by Frederick Stibbert, a wealthy and eclectic Englishman with a Tuscan mother. Its almost fifty thousand artifacts (ranging from the late 15th to the early 19th century) occupy over sixty halls. Among its most interesting exhibits: "parade of Italian, German and Ottoman knights" (16th-17th century), "Indian weapons and armor" (16th-18th century) and "samurai group".
