The Museum im Zeughaus houses permanent displays of soldiers’ personal equipment, artillery, brass instruments, historic military vehicles and other weapons from the Swiss Army of the 19th and 20th centuries. It documents an interesting part of Swiss technological development and includes three distinct collections. The Karl Bauert collection is a display of personal material and equipment of the Swiss army and includes a comprehensive collection of Swiss weapons. The Martin Huber collection comprises guns and motor vehicles, and survey and other equipment of the Swiss artillery. The Jürg Zimmermann collection comprises some one hundred and fifty valuable historical brass instruments.
The museum is housed in Building 5 of the armoury of Schaffhausen Canton. In this building there are some displays dedicated to individual units, including an infantry company and a heavy gun battery. Ownership of the museum rests with the Museum Foundation which was created in December 2004 by Martin Huber, Jürg Zimmermann and Karl Bauert under cantonal supervision and has tax exemption. Only a small part of the area is currently used as an arsenal. Several buildings and offices are used for Civil Defence, and other buildings are currently used by other official bodies.
The Martin Huber collection includes about forty historical military vehicles and trailers that were used by the Swiss Army from 1935 to 1982. All these vehicles are road-registered and maintained by members of the Gesellschaft der Militärmotorfahrer Schaffhausen (GMMS, http://www.gmmsh.ch). They include a small but growing collection of tanks.
