  • It is an integral part of the military Memorial and is located inside the former Home of the 3rd Army at the foot of the Hill of Sant'Elia. The Museum provides an overview of the face and a collection of awesome weapons. Consists of an entrance hall where there is a topographical map of the face and four rooms. The first one is dedicated to the third army: you can see weapons used by fighters during the war, uniforms and medical equipment. In the middle of the Hall was rebuilt a section of trench warfare with the emplacement of a heavy machine gun. On the walls are photographs documenting the life of the trenches. The second room has plans for the construction and history of the cemetery of the Unvanquished and shrine. There are also images of the inscriptions of war found in trenches and a section dedicated to the Navy and the air force. In the third room are exposed military equipment like telephones, leghold traps and shears. In the last room you can see a movie that reconstructs the 12 battles of the Isonzo and the translation of the unknowns from Aquileia to Rome.

  • It is not the Imperial War Museum in London. Is a small museum with many interesting pieces (there is also a small museum on top of the shrine) open thanks to the voluntary work of the Alpine troops. Exposed to sunlight signs do not read anymore and the Museum is absolutely identical to what it was like 21 years ago, when I went there for the first time and since then, every time-and there have been many--still exerts on me always the same charm. What you need to know about World War I learned in books, on the theatres of war, thanks to documentaries and museums. It's still a beginning and I continue to inoculate the seeds of knowledge in my sons hoping to flourish. Redipuglia was a critical step in my teens, I hope it is the same for my children.

  • We walked to the Museum before the War Memorial and del Colle Sant'Elia and I think emotionally is the right order of the route ... very exciting and instructive. filled with memorabilia and well preserved objects, all useful to understand what the daily lives of thousands of soldiers and their risk and sacrifice every day free entrance. great respect and sympathy for veterans who run and welcome visitors.
