The Spanish Civil War

I went through some old pictures and found a couple that might be of interest. All comes from a business trip to Spain a year ago. I visited Seville and found a military museum. I can't seem to find the maps, but it was in the eastern part of town.

I'm interested in the Spanish civil war, and found some interesting exhibits

Russian 45mm L44

A German Pak 36 
A Maxim MG
A French Hotchkiss MG
And now for something completely different - a diorama of the conquest of Seville in 1248. Would be nice to use in a wargame.

A nice, if small, museum. Worth a visit if you're in Seville, are interested in Spanish military history and have an hour to spend. But all texts are in Spanish.

I checked some more (was to late yesterday) and the museum is called Museo Militar and you will find it in Plaza de España.
