The Higgins Armory Museum enjoys the unique distinction of being the only museum in the Northeast devoted to arms and armor. Artifacts range from Corinthian helmets of ancient Greece to ornate Renaissance suits of armor.
Museum will spark the imagination of visitors of all ages with arms and armor ranging from ancient Greek Corinthian helmets to ornate suits of armor crafted at the height of the Renaissance.
Over the years we have gone to Higgins for new exhibits and programs. My kids even took their Dad there for Father's Day and had him officially knighted. :)
Sadly, after 82 or so years, the Museum closes its doors for the last time on Tuesday, December 31st, 2013.
Museum is closing at the end of 2013. Glad I visited. Great collection of medieval arms and armor.
The Higgins Armory is my favorite museum! A unique experience for all ages.
Coming for an overnight? An air mattress is a MUST.
They always have events and the kids room is awesome since they renovated it.
7/15 admission is FREE for all from the Highland Street Foundation!!!
