Two rooms in the museum are dedicated to Islamic arms and armours from the Middle East, with examples from Turkey, Persia and Moghul India.

A large part of the Ottoman arms were bought by Frederick towards the end of the nineteenth century when the armoury of S. Irene in Istanbul was dismantled and many pieces were available on the market.
