Military History Museum (Museo Historico Militar) in Valencia, Spain

This museum has probably the biggest thematic collection of all Valencian museums. Some things in this world just never change. Anything to do with the military is on display, from pistol rounds to tanks and military "dining trucks" (do they exist outside of Spain??). Although there are a few medieval and early modern items (including a 13th century handgun!) the museum focuses mostly on the end of 19th and 20th century, especially on the Spanish Civil War of 1930s. They even rotate "The Piece of the Month" on display. Apart from rows of weaponry and inventory, there are also many good models (e.g. of castles, fortifications and battles). If you can read Spanish you will find the museum also goes into the trouble of explaining to you how different army units, weapons and strategies work on the battlefield and how they evolved. It is actually a real informative and educative museum, not just a pile of guns. If the military is your thing, you will love it.
