It took owner, Robert Taylor 7 years to earn the necessary licensing to import ancient weapons for this stunning museum standing just below the lighthouse. Taylor has been collecting weapons since his teens and has been going strong for half a century. The 3-story 1500 square metre museum houses over 2500 guns, swords and authentic military apparel dating back to the 1400’s. Do not be discouraged by the unpaved road on the way up, this newly erected gem is a real sight.
