  • Just walked in, understanding what was right in front of me, I burst into tears. Very intense, we must never forget!

  • Of course, you're hearing on television for so many years and you think you are now addicted, then see the wreckage of the plane of Ustica, the Penumbra that surrounds it with lights that vary in intensity as the beats of the hearts of the victims. Goose bumps ...

  • It's not a Museum, but a work of art of memory, recreating-in essence of reconstruction-an intense and painful emotions. Not to be missed, for anyone who remembers this awesome Italian history.

  • Interesting to see the aircraft "rebuilt" and the mirrors and light bulbs are a fitting tribute to those who died.
  • Amazing, haunting experience
  • To see. A permanent exhibition really nice. the style is very distinctive and itself just very little to visit. Very touching. Possibly be faulted for style, but for my part I can only say I liked it a lot. One of those pieces of bologna that usually are not considered but should be seen. PS: theoretically could not publish photos (what I hear)

  • To commemorate a massacre that killed 81 people. Years of suffering, red herrings and inquiries. The wreckage of the plane takes my breath away

  • I think it's a must visit this museum. Impressive to see the DC-9 live.
