Enjoy a guided tour of the San Antonio Museum of Art’s special exhibition The Age of Armor: Treasures from the Higgins Armory Collection at the Worcester Art Museum. Armor is as old as human civilization and has been used in various forms in societies around the globe, but full suits of articulated steel plates were made only in Europe, and only for a brief time in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Age of Armor explores the story of armor in its golden age. Special exhibition tours are free with special exhibition admission.
