The collection on view in the Armoury Tower is grouped thematically, encompassing everything from such Mediaeval equipment as upper-body armour and jousting helmets from Gesslerburg in Küssnacht, canton of Schwyz, to Baroque ceremonial and status pieces and Swiss Army uniforms of the 19th and 20th centuries. The various types of weapons, uniforms and equipment are shown and explained in their historical context.
