Castlerock Museum is an arms and armor museum; our exhibits include arms and armor from many points in European history. A visit offers the chance to view and learn about authentic armor spanning many periods; the collection begins with ancient Greece, and concludes in the early modern period. To provide a better sense of the many different cultures our arms and armor originates from, we enrich our displays by using art prints to show the arms and armor in their historical context.
The Alma Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center is located in the Wings Over Alma Building on Main Street. Let us know if you have any questions or comments. We are happy to provide more details. Please email us 24/7 or call us to learn more.
