Collection

The Collection of the Styrian Armoury contains arms and armour from the 15th to the 18th centuries. 

By the turn of the 17th century, the number of arms and armour had grown to approximately 190.000 objects.


Today the Styrian Armoury contains 32, 000 objects: armour, fire arms and cannons, staff and edged weapons, bullet moulds and powder flasks stored on four floors with more than 2000 square metres of exhibition space.


Our conservators explain in an interview how we preserve these objects for further generations and why we cannot touch them.
