Museo De Armas De La Macion - Buenes Aires

On a recent holiday to Argentina I went to the Museo De Armas De La Macion in Avenue St Fe 702 Buenos Aires. If you are ever there it is well worth a visit. It has an amazing collection of over 2000 weapons most of which are small arms. It includes some quite rare examples including a German FG42, a number Gatling guns and a Madsen 12.7mm machine gun. More importantly for this site, there is a diverse collection of different munitions including cartridge boards, cutaways, grenades, large calibre ordnance and many packets. I have attached a few pictures which do not do the museum justice. I apologise for the quality but, understandably, most of the exhibits are behind glass. A few 9mm packets and a 9mm tracer for Lew.

As I said at the beginning an excellent museum and well worth a visit if you are ever in Buenos Aires.

VERY nice!

Yes indeed but alas! Argentina is not next doors… But it’s quite encouraging to see some items having them in the own collection.

Very Nice , thank you for posting.

You miss the museum of the Collectors of Arms and Ammunitions Argentine Association, their reference ammunition collection is amazing !!! Isn’t it Lew ?

I agree! It is the best collection I know of that is owned by an organization, not an individual! I spent a number of days there and only scratched the surface of the specimens and the documentation.

Cheers,
Lew
