What kind of intricate construction goes into samurai armor? The newest exhibition now open at the Samurai Collection, Inside the Armor, reveals the surprising answer.
This exhibition takes a closer look at what is inside Japanese armor, making special use of X-ray technology to reveal the hidden secrets behind the construction of these masterpieces. Helmets, masks and suits of samurai armor present beautiful and creative exteriors. However, it is the quality and craftsmanship of the interior that would ultimately mean the difference between life or death for the warrior. Learn all about the concealed skill and ingenuity of the armorers only at the Samurai Collection.
Open Tuesday through Sunday at 11 AM in the HARWOOD District. Admission is always free. Please call (214) 965-1032 to schedule a private tour. Like The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection on Facebook, follow @samuraimuseum on Instagram and tweet @thesamuraicollection.
