Museum leads a visitor through the years in war and it clearly shows how all the people suffered through the nonsense war. Must see! Especially for the mid aged kids. War is not a game.

Interesting exibit, a must see for everybody just to remind us how tragic and deadly every war was and is. Kids liked it too and it provided a great oportunity to teach them about world war I. A film was also very interesting.

Yes... World War One! WWI is often over shadowed by the horror of WWII- especially in Europe, but the Kobarid Museum provides an intimate and detailed view of WWI and the fighting that took place in this mountainous region. Tons of photos with good descriptive...More
