WHen you visit the castello, these are the two main attraction. You can learn a lot about the weapons - Brescia was famous for good weapon making - and the museum offer a lot. The Risorgimento Museum is like in any other Italian city.

After about an hour one gets tired of seeing racks and racks of armour but it's still pretty spectacular and extensive. Very well managed and full of information. The lack of English signage, however, was a bit off putting for us, but we managed to...More
