  • I have been to this Museum a few days ago, well worth a visit, inside the Museum you will find the wreckage of the plane downed over 80 years in the skies over Ustica departing from Bologna, quite touching the audio that you hear in the background and the 81 lights that go to weaken but never to fade in memory of the 81 victims of the tragedy, to see the video that is transmitted in the room in which it represents the birth of the Museum and the reconstruction of the wreck, very impressive, free entry and open from Friday to Sunday can be easily reached on foot. A piece of history that you cannot but know

  • Definitely a museum to visit, the outfit is gorgeous and the presence of the wreckage of the plane makes everything extremely intense.

  • Worth a visit to remember one of the greatest shames. The Museum is really well done, to see and hear audio and video contributions in the Hall next to the main one. One is literally speechless looking back on what has happened to the Museum is really well done. Admission is free, you can not take pictures if not signing a waiver, nearby parking lots, in front of the entrance there is also a public park with playground for children.
