Arsenal Museum, Branch of the Historical Museum (Lviv)

5 Pidvalnaya Street, Lviv, tel.: +38 0322 72-70-60, +38 0322 72-19-01.

The Arsenal, a museum of weapons, is a branch of the Historical Museum of Lviv.

The Arsenal was built in 1554–1556, but the original building was almost completely destroyed by a fire in 1571. The building was rebuilt as soon as in 1574–1575.

In the Arsenal, weapons were not only stored, but also manufactured and repaired.

During the 1704 Swedish invasion, the Arsenal was destroyed, but rebuilt again in 2 years. In the 18th century, the Arsenal was also used as a prison.

In 18th and 19th centuries, having been rebuilt many times, the Arsenal lost its original appearance.

In 1979–1981, the Arsenal was restored.

Since 1981, the Arsenal has been housing exhibitions of the Museum, which presents samples of ancient weapons from over 30 countries of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and America.

The exhibitions are organised chronologically, by weapon type and by place of manufacture.

By the present time, the higher levels of the Museum have been restored, and the original interior and appearance (for example, the original brickwork of the walls, the design of the roof and windows) have been reconstructed.
