Long Description:
ING: Its foundation dates back to 1929 (prevalence of the 10th Infantry Regiment stationed here, and later the 3rd Battalion of Hunters). Under the pretext of recovering the Castle and the consequent extinction of the Battalion, the Military Museum also left, returning in 1983 with the original collection enriched by pieces of light arms from the sixth century. XII until the first World War.
The Military Museum of Bragança occupies the entire interior of the Tower imposing itself as the memory space of the city's military experiences, as most of the original pieces were donated by residents, participating in campaigns in Africa and a World War II.

PT: A sua fundação remonta a 1929, (na prevalência do Regimento de Infantaria 10 aqui aquartelado e, posteriormente, o Batalhão de Caçadores 3). Sob o pretexto da recuperação do Castelo e a consequente extinção do Batalhão também o Museu Militar partiu, regressando em 1983 com o acervo original enriquecido por peças de armamento ligeiro desde o séc. XII até à 1ª Guerra Mundial.
O Museu Militar de Bragança ocupa todo o interior da Torre impondo-se como espaço memória das vivências militares da cidade, porquanto a maioria das peças originais foram doadas pelos habitantes, participantes nas Campanhas de África e 1ª Guerra Mundial.
