Plenty of fire arms and armor, and to be fair something to hold everyone's interest. The limited English signage was disappointing,especially after the audio player malfunctioned.

An excellent museum, well laid out it is housed on three floors. Allow plenty of time and note that it can be seen through the Bologna Welcome Card.
