The European Armoury was created during forty years of collecting, from about 1860 to the beginning of 1900s. It includes many armours, swords, spears, crossbows, rifles and guns, the greatest part from sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. There are also some archaeological and fourteenth-century specimens, and some nineteenth-century reproductions.

The armours are mainly sixteenth century from the most important Italian, German and French production areas. There are arms and armours for warfare and others for tournament.
