I had no idea about the Ustica crash before visiting Bologna - but the museum was behind our hotel, so we visited on Sunday afternoon, and were simply blindsided by it. A very simple space, the whole exhibit is part memorial, part art installation, part news archive, which has been sympathetically created and beautifully installed. I was moved to tears... More

I went to the Museo per la memoria di ustica on a Saturday and the entry was free. It is a very small museum but it is worth the walk (about 10mins from Bologna Centrale). I suggest that you put this as your last item in your itinerary if you are leaving Bologna by train. It was a melancholic experience... More

Those who are aware of this unlucky Itavia flight will be touched, the others will learn about one of the biggest and unexplained tragedies of our times. Not a fun ride, but an impressive sight

Me and my partner love visiting various Italian cities, we appreciate the food/drink, culture, old architecture and of courses all the churches and cathedrals. However, if you are visiting Bologna, you must go to this museum! It's totally unique, emotional and touching. Do be warned, if you cannot speak or read Italian, do your research first as no English information... More

It is really impressive. If you know about this story, it is something that will break you heart. The atmosphere is sad and it gives you the opportunity to ask several question to yourself.....excellent.

Small, but full of meaning, the museum touches you in your heart. Don't miss the film about the crash.

This is an incredibly moving and powerful tribute to the victims of the Ustica plane crash. Describing the place will not do it justice so if in Bologna, you must experience it first hand. It is an easy 10 minute walk from the train station and there are a couple of good coffee shops on the way which you may... More

Over 30 years since the crash of flight 870 , a definitive answer to the question of what caused the crash is still not available. An English language TV program a few years ago claimed that it was a bomb placed on board, but many theories still abound and evidence is conflicting. The remains of the aircraft came to rest...

As with the many museums in Bologna they are superb. You have to visit the religious art and buildings are stunning.
