Small, but full of meaning, the museum touches you in your heart. Don't miss the film about the crash.

This is an incredibly moving and powerful tribute to the victims of the Ustica plane crash. Describing the place will not do it justice so if in Bologna, you must experience it first hand. It is an easy 10 minute walk from the train station and there are a couple of good coffee shops on the way which you may... More

This memorial of the mysterious plane crash near the island of Ustica is very well curated and presented as to linger for a long time in one's conscience. The remains of the actual fuselage have been meticulously collected from the ocean floor to be displayed in the center of the hall that was built specifically to house it. Surrounded by... More

There are no words to explain the sensation you'll have visiting this museum. this big plane lying on the floor, the recorded voices of the death passengers, the lights bulb switching on and off. just go there and remind what happened.
