Very impressive collection of military hardware. Rows and rows of swords, pistols, rifles, sub-machine guns, machine guns, cannons etc from many nations. All in cabinets with no touching, no photos.

Must be shut on Saturdays, go figure! There are number of small cannon outside in a gated courtyard that can be viewed through the fence. Mostly WWI items by the look of it. Too bad I missed it.

Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
