Operated for nearly two centuries of continuous production of rifles and muskets used by America’s armed forces until closed in 1968. Reopened in 1978 as the Springfield Armory National Historic Site, the original 1840’s arsenal houses the world’s largest collection of historic American military firearms.

Started as a technical reference collection for Springfield Armory workers in 1862, the museum highlights many of the best examples of US military shoulder arms plus pistols, machine guns, edged weapons, and production machinery.
