This museum is really three separate sites :
Great War Museum in Tre Sassi Fort : 5 Torri and Lagazuoi.

The Great War Museum is in Tre Sassi Fort and there is an entrance charge. The museum itself is an unexceptional collection of exhibits and displays but they are housed in an old Austro-Hungarian Fort which wasbuilt in the nineteenth century and was in the front line of the fighting in WWI : this is worth visting. The Fort is on the road through the Valparola Pass and offers spectacular views as well as opportunities for walking.

The 5 Torri museum is an open air museum where it is possible to walk along the mountain paths and see the Italian defence line and artilery headquarters with recontructed shelters and entrenchments. It can be reached on foot but we took the chair lift to the top of the mountain and then walked around the summit. (The chair lift goes from a really pleasant shop/restaurant where there's lots of parking up to a height of 2225m)

Both are very different and offer an insight into the conditions experienced by those on the front line in the war. For the Tre Sassi Fort, 1-2 hours is enough time for a visit: for the 5 Torre, you need at least half a day .
