Online weapons collections that I use.

The Royal Armouries - a very broad collection including ethnographic weapons.

The Royal Collection - primarily European, but with a very fine collection of Indian arms and armour.

The phenomenal Wallace Collection - both European and Oriental/Asian collections.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna - seems primarily to have the European weapons digitally catalogued, though the collection has a fair selection of high quality Indo-Persian items.

The V&A Museum - unhelpfully a lot of the collection is not yet photographed, but the items are described in detail, and you can request pictures of anything of interest.

The Ashmolean Museum Oxford - search by terms. A broad mix of items.

National Museum of Korea - search by terms. Primarily Korean weaponry.

The State Hermitage Museum - a mixed collection of high quality European and Indo-Persian items, with a scattering of ethnographic pieces.

Of course the amazing Metropolitan Museum collection.

Not ethnographic, but perhaps still of interest - the UK National Army Museum.
