Description EN

The NRA’s National Firearms Museum is on the ground floor of the organization’s headquarters and it’s one of the world’s most outstanding private collections. Over two thousand rare and historic guns are on display. Each one is a direct connection to our history and our heritage.

You can see the beginnings of America’s firearms industry in one of Samuel Colt’s very first revolvers… a Holster Model Colt Paterson with a folding trigger, made around 1839. You’ll see one of the first rifles ever in America, the Mayflower gun that arrived with the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock in 1620.


Be careful, and do not lean on the glass cases. They are alarmed.
