This is a museum that does not really advertise.
Being on an active military Base, you need I'd documents to enter the Base then again to enter the museum. You are then escorted by a soldier to 3 buildings containing an interesting collection of vehicles from pre 1st world war to the 1970's.
Info that ion on some exhibits is provided in English.
The buildings have damp penetrative as well as water leaks.
You are not allowed to examine any of the armoured vehicles and tanks around the site, which is a shame.
There are many things that could be improved, but I suspect that there are no funds available. If money and time were spent this could be a collection to rival many in England.

Let me start with an extract from the museum website (which is actually the Ministry of Defense's website with 'Museums' section therein):

"The Museum is situated in Rome-Cecchignola, Viale dell'Esercito n. 170 – tel. 0650237374.

It is possible to visit it on Saturday from 9.00 a.m. to 12.00 a.m. The admission is free.​​"

So here I was on Saturday the 19th of January at 9.30 a.m. at the entrance - I gave my passport to the soldier at the entrance, he checked if for a while, then he invited couple more folks to check it and after 5 minutes he just gave it back to me saying 'the museum is closed'.
I tried bringing to their attention that the museum is supposed to be open exactly now, then they had another excuse (they were not speaking englush well, so they let google translate on a smartphone do the talking, or should I say writing) - 'you had to make a reservation'
what reservation?! Again, the website says when are the opening hours and that it is free - it does not mention any pre-booking or any kind of reservation required, or that you should have some special permission.
I asked whether I can make a reservation right now - of course it was impossible - 'come next week'.
Now, for a museum that obviously is NOT crowded how come that even if there is a person who showed up and took all the way to this place (and it's not exactly conveniently located, to be honest) you guys are totally unwilling to let him/her in?!
This is not my first museum being a military base and thus playing by its own rules,
I was in Wehrtechnische Sammlung Bundeswehr in Koblenz, which is a unit of the German army but it was so much more welcoming.
A disappointment and a waste of time, that's what it has been.
