    "I'm in Heaven" - can't get better than this!

    Evening All,

    Apart from inert ordnance I also have an interest in old koto (pre-1500) Samurai swords and armor.

    Here's a place in Geelong (about an 1 hr drive) from Melbourne, which I knew off and finally manage to visit earlier this year.

    The front entrance is the shop and the rear /upstair is the Museum section.

    Some really great stuff!

    Enjoy.

    Cheers

    Drew

    Incredible pics of an amazing Museum! Blown away by some of the artifacts they have on display. Besides some really nice inert ordnance, those Japanese armor suits are just incredible! They must be priceless. Blown away! Thanks for sharing these photos.

    Very nice shop. Must have been in the right place and the right time to gather all those nice bits.

    You can find a few more photos from Graeme's website - he must be upgrading the site as he had a 3D walkabout zoom function at one stage.

    I need to re-visit and spend some time examining some of his swords.

    Jason - there's a suit of armor for sale, so I gather that he periodically keeps upgrading the items in the Museums with better quality when they poop up.

    Cheers
