Very welcoming museum. The young man at the desk explained what there was to see and told us when the dvd would be shown in English. Everything was labelled in several languages, we didn't know much about the conflict here and found it all informative and moving. Although the museum focused on the 1st World War it encouraged cooperation and peace.

As my grandfather fought in WW1 on the Isonzo front, I’ve been reading up on the subject for years and the subject greatly interests me.
The staff could not have been more helpful or informative. The museum is stacked with three floors of WW1 paraphernalia.
The drive from Gorizia in Italy, up the valley of the Socha (formerly Isonzo) was through countryside which ranged from pretty to, ultimately, spectacular as one approached Kobarid (Caporetto) and the high Julian Alps.
I would recommend this museum highly, particularly to anyone having a particular interest in WW1.

Loved the experience. As a Slovene I know a lot about I. World War and the monstrosities that happened in this area, but to read all the stories in the museum and see what it was like for young man out there, it was really something special. It makes us think what war really brings on the peoples lives.

On the bright note, I loved that there is a small segment dedicated to findings in iron, bronze and copper age.

We have visited before - some 14 years ago. The museum is a collection of artefacts and photos well put together in a chronology.

It is good to do the local walks to the trenches first and then visit the museum to take in the enormity of what happened here. You see things in the photos you recognise.

The lady at reception has excellent language skills and is lovely.

For all of those interested in First World War events, this is a must place to visit while on your trip to this area.
Museum will give you a fealing on how did they struggle during the times of War in this area. Lots of objects on display also.

Kobarid Museum—This little museum is FULL of info, photos and artifacts! The number of good quality photographs from WWI really surprised us. It sounds like some can do this in an hr, but if you want to read most of the text and watch the film, you will need more like 2 hrs. Don’t freak out when you see all the text to read; you only need to read the quarter of it that is in your language. The time we spent was a pleasant experience until a tour group showed up, but that just meant dodging them in order to be able to inspect the exhibits.

Very detailed museum. We allotted an hour and I could have spent two. The newest exhibit on the first floor has quite a bit of information to read that goes year by year. There are many artifacts, uniforms, and photos to see.

This is the first place people should stop when visiting Kobarid. There is an extensive amount of information available related to the history of Kobarid, with an emphasis on WWI. You could probably spend a few hours here if you wanted to. The guy who was working there was extremely helpful in giving us directions to the sights in the area. Definitely a worthwhile stop.

Everyone should visit this museum as the horrors, atrocities, and sacrifices of any war should never be forgotten, erased, or dismissed from the collective mind. A remarkable collection.

A fascinating insight into a major battle during WW1 held in this region. Particularly interesting was the video projection display that mapped out the battle on a large, 3D topographical map of the region. Lots of other interesting displays. Well worth a visit.
