A COLLECTION OF WEAPONS AND MILITARY EQUIPMENT FROM THE 16TH CENTURY TO THE PRESENT DAY
The collection was created by merging the Collection of weapons and military equipment (16th-18th century) and the Collection of weapons and military equipment (19th-20th century). It has over 240 units of material. It contains cold weapons and firearms, weapons accessories, military equipment. They can be handicraft, factory and handmade. War-related material predominates. Part of the material are items that were used for hunting (hunting rifles, hunting bag). Craft weapons and weapon accessories are characterized by exceptional craft processing of objects (sabers, holsters, cartridge box). On the other hand, factory (industrial) weapons, weapons accessories and military equipment are quite uniform in their appearance (rifles, sabers, bayonets, firecrackers, etc.). The collected material includes all the war conflicts that took place in this area in the period from 1804 to 1999. The material related to hunting refers to the period of the 19th and 20th centuries.
