This museum is worth visiting if time permits. It has a good collection of the arms. Get a combined passed for 5 sites at a reduced price when visiting this and the 2 towers, etc.

I liked this museum a lot. It shows all kinds of arms, guns, pikes and swords. Some are very special like the backward shooting gun.
