Army Museum

Local nameMuseo del Ejército
LocationToledo, Spain

The Museum of the Army is a mid-level museum located in Toledo, Spain. It is housed in two linked buildings, the city's historic Alcázar and a purpose-built extension. This museum contains a lot of miniature replicas of battles, and other things.

The history of the museum goes back to 1803 when the royal military museum was established in a building in Madrid known as the Palacio de Monteleón. The building also served as a barracks for artillery units and it was attacked and looted by the French when they suppressed the Dos de Mayo Uprising of 1808. The museum was set up again, but in 1827 it was divided into two sections: the Museo de Artillería and the Museo de Ingenieros. Later the collections were unified and housed in the Hall of Realms.
