The Ancient Arms’Museum is located in the Second Tower, situata 755 meters of height on the Mount Titan. It contains 2,000 ancient weapons that the State of San Marino has acquired between 1956 and 1972.
The exhibition is on two floors of the tower, divided into four rooms, and describes the evolution of weapons, the transition from the white ones – swords, daggers and crossbows – to the fire, also no shortage of prototypes and experimental weapons such as the dagger-pistol of 1730, the two-handed spade of the XVI century and the double pistol, with two barrels and two triggers dating to the end of the 1800’s.
The Museum opened in 1956, thanks to an agreement stipulated with Giovanni Carlo Giorgetti, a well-known collector of arms from San Marino.
