Much of history and stored material from WW1 time. Health care Instruments and drugs were interested to see and imagine how it all went on that time... You can easily combine this visit with hiking route ( ie tunnel route Lagazuoi (402)- only 900 m distance. Museum has own parking area.

Went there on a rainy foggy cold day at the end of May. I swear that place is brimming with ghosts. Glad my husband was with me, I would not have stepped out of the car by myself! Couldn't even look at the oversized cutout figure of a soldier in uniform standing watch over the monument - with another, dead,... More

This is a local museum with lots of personal military items from the Italian/Austrian conflict. fascinating and worth a walk around particularly if you are passing on your way back from the Sellaronda to Cortina. The curator was not particularly friendly but its the personal touch of the items in the museum and the photos which bring it all home.... More

Visited here after having viewed the area from a nearby cable car ride. Siting the museum in a building from that period of time helps with the authenticity of the displays. Obviously a work of passion for one family however it is still fascinating for the casual visitor. Check opening times before visiting to make sure it is open. Closes... More

The museum wasn't open on my first visit, but I returned a year later and made the most of the opportunity to see the equipment, uniforms, and relics of the Great War.

Worth the short stop to understand the folly of war and the human toll of trying to defend a frontier in high alps, and at all costs. Museum full of recovered artefacts and a real snapshot of what it must have been like to serve on this front line.

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.
