  • You can't go to Bologna and not visit this Museum (as you can not not go see the tear in the wall of the station). Exciting, touching. To spread the news of its existence. A real thrill.

  • The partial reconstruction of the DC9 crashed in the sea of Ustica for reasons not yet precisely defined, made with fragments recovered after the disaster, coupled with artistic reconstruction of the voices of the passengers is very touching.

  • Honestly a bit regretful to be entered, having brought back to memory that tragic day, still unsolved mystery and a thought goes to the 81 victims and families of that inauspicious event

  • 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.
