On December 21, 2013, sixty or so SCA folk visited the Higgins Armory Museum in Worcester, Massachusetts. With most dressed in armor or garb, they gathered to say goodbye to the historic facility before it closes at the end of the month.
Throughout its 83 years, the museum’s extensive collection of arms and armor has been a treasure for researchers — especially those of us interested in the middle ages. The museum remains in full operation in its current historic art-deco building until it closes on December 31, 2013. In January 2014, the collection will be transfered to the Worcester Art Museum.
