This is a very strongly narrative presentation - personally ( and speaking as a museum professional) I found the design concept a bit overpowering and lacking in variety - very dark and I don't think some of the interpretive elements worked too well but it...More

Remarkable scenography for this museum covering WWI and WWII, with a lot of small pieces detailing the daily life of soldiers and population. Don't expect to see planes, tanks and large piece, but hundreds of small testimonials, carefully selected in a beautifull display. Take your...More
