We visited the Stibbert museum with my 2 daughters. We were impressed by the large and eclectic collection of weapons and armors. We were also impressed by the accumulation of art and furnitures.

Room after room of Islamic, European, and Japanese plate armor and weaponry. The Samurai stuff really is remarkable for what it encompasses. I wish the tour guide had allowed us to remain longer in that part of the museum because there is *so much* to...More
