A view into the celebration hall with the sporting weapon showcases

The Baumann Foundation

...is part of the Reichsstadtmuseum since 1999.

More than 1.000 objects represent the history of weapons from the Stone Age to the 19th century in an absolute high quality manner.

Highlights are e.g. a hunting ensemble of the French Queen Marie Antoinette, a sporting rifle (with sabre) of Jérôme Napoleon or a duel pistol ensemble of Prince Klemenz von Metternich - all items were created by the LePage family, the undisputed masters of gunsmith crafts in Europe!

Along with the weapons, a high quality collection of faiences is displayed. Especially the items of the Ansbach, Crailsheim, Schrezheim and Nuremberg manufactures can compete with objects of larger museums.

Don´t forget to have a look at the pastry moulds, the pewter objects and the locks. Click on the picture galleries! You´ll be amazed!
