Check out the collection of arms and armor from the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester before it heads over to the Worcester Art Museum.

The Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester has been a mecca for medieval and Renaissance fanatics for decades. Due to fiscal struggles, however, it will close December 31. But fear not, lords and ladies! The arms and armor will move to the Worcester Art Museum. Objects outside the core collection are being sold off.
