  • There are no words to describe the storm of emotions that you try visiting the Museum. Within the large hangar is located the wreck of the DC9, surrounded by lights intermittently and black mirrors, as many as the poor victims who, from within each mirror, express a thought, a word spoken, probably just before everything to end. Interesting room with monitors reproducing reports, investigations and services at the time. The grandeur of the Museum is, however, in the representation of facts rendered with great emotional intensity without the shadow of morbidity or entertainment factor. YOU MUST LIVE IT AND REMAIN SILENT.

  • Throughout the museum exudes an air of sad and exciting. The image of the plane clearly reveals the great tragedy of the evening of 27 June 1980. Articles of people, sounds, voices, everything is touching and moving. Absolutely worth visiting.

  • I wanted to go ... I took advantage of a trip to Bologna for errands and finally managed to visit this museum completely unusual. The wreck leaves you speechless, the 81 screens with catchphrases of the thoughts that everyone does, make me shudder. We were an hour in apprehension, it is easy to be moved but is not a macabre visit. Need to not forget what happened ... Free admission, free offer (offering something you have a booklet with poems)
