Overview
More
Housed in the Castle of Rovereto, it is one of the most important Italian museums dedicated to the First World War. It offers two possible itineraries: one is dedicated to the armies and wars of the Nineteenth century and the Great War, with objects, photographs and materials concerning trench warfare and the experience of civilians, the other leads to the discovery of the fortified towers and tunnels of the Castle, housing collections of weapons from prehistoric times to the modern-age.

We took the train from Venice to Rovereto. Unfortunately we could not take the earliest train and had to settle for the longer and later one. It shorten our visit at the museum. It is a beautiful trip by train, going through the Italian Alps....More

I'm a historian, specializing on both world wars. I had read that this museum was special. It wasn't. Considering how much German is spoken in the area, a second language would have helped. The smaller museum in Bassano is MUCH better.

We were very impressed by this large museum in the beautiful town of Rovereto. Great explanations. Begins with huge cannons outside the museum & continues with a treasure trove of information and objects. Absolute must for anyone interested in military history.

This museum is beautiful. Great atmosphere, great lights, very good stuff. The visit inside is kinda "guided" by the staff. Make sure you don't miss the torrioni!

The location, starting up the valley wall in rovereto is stunning. AS other people here have said, there is a large collection of war history, perhaps primarily WW1, but some other collections pre-dating WW1. I enjoyed wandering around the galleries and there are some fantastic...More

Graphic story of the tragic events of WW1 fighting between Italy & Austro-Hungary. Easy accessible and set in an old castle. A memorable experience.
