I do not consider myself a weapons person but the historical aspect of the displays is totally fascinating. The guides were wonderfully knowledgeable and personable.

Castlerock Museum has recently completed a revision of its displays. Most interesting to me are the recently added Athenian helmet dating to c.650 BC and a double-barrel wheel-lock pistol from 1591. The display of many additional period items made a return visit to this hidden...More
