About
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.

A really big museum allow a long time to visit. This is one of the tourist venues that uses the trentino card, making a brilliant cheap day out. No cafe but plenty in rovereto. Lots of history of the area and all about the military around Europe.
We didn't have time to visit the extra part below the walls.

Great museum. With a Trento pass you get in free. This has been a museum for many years so the displays are top quality and the English translation is first quality. The castle reconstruction is first class. Most of the exhibits are ww 1 and also some old armour. If you are into military history or interested in European wars and the causes the exhibits really provide great insight into why it all happened and why their wars moved from wars of negotiation to total destruction. Very insightful and thought provoking.

This museum is located inside the castle
of Rovereto and is really very interesting and suitable for everyone.

The castle is perfectly maintained and the internal museum is well organized and rich in history.

A place absolutely to visit, where you can discover many aspects of the war that you would not normally know.

Really beautiful.

This Museum it is inside a Majestic castle on the top of a rock overlooking the river Leno, the castle was built in the fourteenth century at the behest of Castelbarco, received the current polygonal shape during the Venetian domination from 1416 to 1519, it was an important fortified center guarding the Adige valley.
After various vicissitudes restoration fires and still restorations, from the early twenties of the last century it became the seat of the war museum, very interesting even if I prefer the castle

Entrance is 7.5 euros but free with the Trentino Card.
The castle is impressive ,especially with the two magnificent towers, panoramic views and recently restored embankment. The museum is outstanding. Not just the range of objects, from artillery, the restored 1918 Ni 10 plane in its original colours to flamethrowers, barbed wire and gas masks but the far more emotive ....
The photos of Rovereto's bomb damage, of the soldiers in the trenches. The puppets and other items made by POW's. General Cadorna's uniform. The Pietro Morando works on the wall, inspired by his periods of imprisonment.
Other periods of History are also covered.
Fascinating 'Green Corridor' full of international military uniforms from 1945 to 2000 and a poignant room dedicated to the war dead.
Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the collection.

We gained free entry to the museum by virtue of our Trentino card, which our hotel in Rovereto had given us free of charge.

The imposing castle, within which the museum is housed, sits dominantly on a hill on the side of Rovereto: you can’t miss it. Built in the 15th and 16th centuries, the museum displays weapons and other artefacts of warfare from the 16th century onwards, up to and including the First World War. Explanations on the exhibits are all in Italian, but each room also has hand-outs which summarises in English many of the items on display. A focus on the First World War includes items such as photographs, letters, propaganda leaflets etc. that, all in all, make for a poignant insight into the brutality and – some might say – the futility of war.
An interesting and worthwhile visit.

We entered the museum at 5pm thinking we would have had 1 hour to see it, but in reality it closes at 5,30 and at every room we had staff asking us to speed up and closing the room behind us. Not only we had to rush - which would have been bad enough, but we could not even choose to skip a section and enjoy others more due to the museum set up. The staff was just eager to end the shift in advance, which I understand, but is not service minded and ruined our experience.

Other than that the castle is great and the museum very nice too, so I’d still recommend a visit.
