Sad news, the Higgins Armory Museum is closing. The Armory has a huge collection of arms and armor from all over the world (although it mostly focuses on Europe). The collection is going to the Worcester Art Museum so I'm happy to see it stay in the city, but man...that place was awesome and it'll be sad to see it go.
I was introduced to the museum in high school when I stumbled across some exhibit catalogs at a library sale. How they wound up in the middle of Nebraska is still a mystery but I loved those catalogs. A couple years later I trying to find out more about this "Worcester" place where I'd be going to college and I suddenly made the connection.
So yeah, the museum is closing at the end of the year so go see it now while you can.
