  • A museum to the smallest detail, with the simulation of the bombing to show the destruction it caused. A large assortment of weapons and uniforms, for those who love the history of this period is a must go and visit.

  • A very special Museum and well cared for, both in historical reproductions of homes, pre and post war buildings of wax figures (by the same artist Madame Toussaud); realistic simulation of bombings, it was a surprise to the variety of uniforms and war objects it contains. A ticket really cheap for this rare gem, absolutely recommended to lovers of history!

  • I knew enough history landings in Sicily or better landings, but this property if you want to call it really excited me, and my wife is Cuban has also left a few tears especially where is simulated air strikes and you're there in a likely bomb shelter, and then pictures, movies, stories, weapons and uniforms , I mean to keep her long perfect ...! congratulations to those who gave us this.
