“Great Collection”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

It's a very vast collection of WWI material. Just incredible what mankind was capable of just a 100 years ago. Its shows you, again, that war is a devastating business.

“Very comprehensive”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

There are plenty of things to see, from the history of war (how weapons and battle stategies changed over time), to the many witnesses of first world war. Within the cave under the mountain, original pieces of cannons and photographs give an idea of how hard was to set the fire line over the mountains pulling the all the weapons in the snow, upon steep routes, with the only help of mules. Very touching.
