  • Interesting to see the aircraft "rebuilt" and the mirrors and light bulbs are a fitting tribute to those who died.
  • Amazing, haunting experience
  • Worth spending few minutes there
  • NICE BUT at least a pack a pair of shoes a hat under plexiglass and even a seat and the carpet ... I know you have been recovered but what happened?? Li of the plane there is only the fuselage (without aircraft identification number) and movies (very long and very hard) in a small cramped ... Ah some audio panels weren't working. I'm pretty sure this ... otherwise ok.

  • Art installation successful and effective. Communicates without rhetoric the grief of a massacre. Ben also made the media room for the historical content. Worth a visit if you're passing to the Bolognina.
