This museum is very cool. A lot of the signage outside (museum was still closed for season) were in English and very informative. there are old field guns (artillery pieces) which lend a sense of historical drama to the bitter conditions this WW I battle site must have presented to the soldiers from both sides.

Located high up on the remote Passo di Valparolo this small museum is well worth a visit if you are in the area. It gives a detailed look into the past for you to begin to imagine what it must have been like to be stationed up in these mountains in WW1, and the hardships the soldiers must have incurred,...

My family climbed the Sass de Stria and I decided to wait at the bottom for them and visit the museum. I took a 20 euro note from my husband to pay for the museum and a drink while I waited. When I handed the note to the ticket office, I was given 3 euros change for a 7 euro... More

Lots items from war time from the same area. The big battles were just the place where the museum is. You got an idea what happened and what were the weapons and tools back then. Worth visiting even if you spend a little time inside the museum. The old trenches start just the opposite of the road!

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.
