Il museo espone in due sale la collezione di armi islamiche, provenienti dal Vicino e dal Medio Oriente mussulmano. Probabilmente un primo nucleo di oggetti erano già conservati in casa Stibbert, fin dai tempi del nonno di Frederick, comandante delle forze della Compagnia delle Indie e Governatore del Bengala durante la seconda metà del Settecento.
 
Un altro cospicuo nucleo fu acquistato da Stibbert alla fine del secolo, dopo la dispersione dell'Arsenale di S. Irene nell' odierna Istambul, che immise sul mercato grandi quantità di armi.
