I thought I'd bring this topic back to life for a bit. The Schwarzenberg Palace armoury is still around and of course a wonderful gallery. However there are a few other places off the beaten track worth seeking out. I recently had a free day to make a few museum visits.

First of all The City of Prague Museum, this one isn't as well trafficked as the national museum network, but it has some wonderful exhibits detailing the history of Prague. Part of that includes arms and armour artifacts.

A few selections below including an exceptional bronze sword, early iron swords and spears, 13th century swords and axes and Hussite arms as well as an early bronze hand cannon.
