Rain and mist. The goal was to see the museum and the trenches. The view from the top of Marmolada is spectacular (if not obscured by cloud) the museum is fantastic. You’ll get a short but violent history lesson. And a important lesson for all...More

We went for a hike near here. We just happened to pass by and stopped in. Very impressive collection of artifacts from the war. Detailed history of the war and the hardships of the soldiers as well as the local people. Glad we stopped by!

My wife and I visited here for about ninety minutes on Friday Sept.15. We were on a visit of the Dolomite Road and I knew there had been very frecious fighting in this area during the First World War. This is not a fancy place,...More

Fascinating not only for the WWI artifacts and history, but for the building in which it is housed -- a bombed out fortress. So the war artifacts are housed, literally, within another artifact. Definitely worth a visit! Closed between noon and 2 pm.

Fascinating collection of articles from WWI. It was included as part of a guided tour of the area. If your on your own, not sure whether the museum offers tours. Would be a lot less interesting without a guided tour.

Outside Austria and Italy, the Dolomite theatre of war is generally overlooked, but this museum really gets to grips with the lives of the troops and the hideous difficulties in which these extraordinary men fought in the high mountains. The huge range of exhibits, especially...More

Driving the Falzarego, and the Valparola above it give you incredible vistas of several different ranges in the magnificent Dolomiti. Scenic, with old artillery pieces, several cable tram lifts and Inn/cafes at the tops of the passes make these drives unforgettable if you are a...More
