In 2011, more than 140 pieces from the collection of Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller were compiled to form a one-of-a-kind traveling exhibition that features full suits of samurai armor, helmets, masks, weapons, and horse tack. These incredible artifacts trace the evolution of the appearance and functionality that characterized Japanese warriors in the battlefield.
The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection, located in the Harwood District of Dallas, is proud to be the permanent home for a collection that has been seen by more than 1.3 million visitors worldwide and continues to cultivate interest among art connoisseurs and design enthusiasts.
