A fantastic place to visit if you are interested in World War One. This fortress formed part of the Austrian defences facing off their Italian opponents on the Cinque Torre. The museum boasts a great collection of artefacts and it's worth taking a moment or two to appreciate the local family who gathered most of the artefacts. Below the fort... More

Interesting museum concentrating on the conflict between Italy and Austria during WW1 on their mountainous border. The museum is surprisingly small - looks far bigger from outside. There are however a lot of displays and to their great credit a lot of displays are in English. Usual collection of weaponry, uniforms and remnants of everyday life on the front line.... More

A good background to the 'White War', especially welcoming when the weather has turned! Also has a good little bookshop to pick up some background reading.

Very interesting to learn about the WW1 conflict between the Italians and Austrians in the Dolomites. I knew very little about this conflict considering how much we learned about the Great War at school. It's housed in an old Austrian defensive fort and is quite limited but if you're driving over Passo Falzarego you might as well turn off and... More

We visited in early June 2015 just after hiking down the Italian WWI tunnel of nearly 1 kilometer! The museum was as cold and damp as the tunnel giving visitors the eerie feeling of what the soldiers felt. Good collection of soldiers uniforms, gloves, guns, and journals.

The Tre Sassi fort now houses a huge collection of WW1 memorabilia. It is best visited if you have already been to several of the open air museum sights in the area which are accessible from various points nearby.

The Museo Guerra Museum provides an amazing amount of World War I artifacts found in the Dolomites, where the Italians and Austrians fought in brutal conditions. Imagine trenches filled with ice and snow and trying to stay warm. Our guide was dressed in an ancestors uniform and described how the soldiers were often fighting against neighbors and relatives, since this... More

This is probably the best collection of WW1 artefacts etc in the Dolomites. Well worth an hour or so.

This is a must do. Visiting the Tre Sassi fort really takes you back in the past - walking through the trenches, seeing the huge number of artifacts in the museum chambers or reading the stories. Even the museum has only 3 chambers that you can visit, plan to spend some time there and check out all the WW1 artifacts.... More

This is a review of the Great War Museum based in the ruins of an old fort. There is a charge for entry, however I felt this was fair given the need for the upkeep of the museum. The museum is located at a dramatic location on a mountain pass on the road to Cortina D'Ampezzo. The views surrounding the... More
