Overview

In an attempt to caution against war, and a desire for peace in Europe, the Museum accurately documents the WWI Front from the Ortler Mountains to the plains of the Isonzo. The region's history during the War is presented by revealing the fate of common soldiers as well as that of the local civilian populations from both sides. This is successfully accomplished with the aid of numerous photographs, documents, personal items of the soldiers, as well as artifacts and displays which include excellent recreations of various structures. The museum also allows the visitor to see how the "Paths of Peace" have been paved by the hard work of the "Friends of the Dolomites". These paths stretch from the Plocken Pass in the east to the Col di Lana in the west.

Spent several hours here, and really was impressed. The detail and impact of the museum was really profound. I recommend it for anyone who has studied WW1. This is serious stuff, great historical documents and objects within a very well done historical context.

We were completely surprised at how fantastic this museum is. We visited the one in Kobarid, Slovenia during this trip which we had heard much about. Finding the 1915/1918 Museum in Mauthen was a surprise and we thought it would be very small. However, we...More

While I must admit my interest in this museum will be biased, as I am particularly interested in the military history of this region in WW 1, my wife would not have said the same before visiting this outstanding museum for the first time. Even...More
