Musuem of the Polish Army
Museum was founded by Marshal Jozef Pilsudski in 1920 but its present location and style comes from 1933. It contains a collection of Polish arms and armour from medieval times to the end of the Second World War. It is the largest collection of this kind in Poland. The oldest exhibit is a gold helmet from the time of the first Christian kings.


Among those more unusual exhibits are medieval jousting armour and an impressive collection of 17th century armour of the Husaria, the famous Polish cavalry, with eagle wings, leopardskins and a mounted cavalryman in full regalia. In the park outside visitors may also admire some heavy weapons from the times of World Wars.
