Explorer Friday @ The Royal Armouries

Last Friday we went to the Royal Armouries, one of three national museums of arms and armour in England.

Besides the impressive Hall of Steel, we were fascinated most by the Oriental Gallery with its exhibition of extravagantly decorated oriental armour from China and Japan – even for elephants! Also, being just outside of the city, the Armouries is a hidden gem. Our students will definitely come back for a stroll next to the river Aire.
