Castlerock Museum is an arms and armor museum in Alma, Wisconsin, with exhibits that include many time periods in European history. Walk with the warriors of the Western World on a self-guided trip from the days of Rome, through the Dark Ages, the Vikings, the Crusader Knights in chain mail and into the Golden Age of the fully armored Renaissance "Knight in Shining Armor." Watch empires rise and fall, and see how arms and armor adapt to changing times. Hundreds of rare and authentic examples of arms and armor are on display in an easily viewed open wall format rather than in rows of closed cases. Reproductions of famous paintings illustrate how the arms and armors were used and provide the cultural context for each piece. An interpretive display panel is in each exhibit with short and concise illustrated descriptions for those wishing to know more about any of the particular pieces of arms and armor or the art.
