  • We reached Passo Coe with free bus from Folgaria and did the walk down to the base. Was closed but from the outside it's all visible, nearby is the Lake Coe, icy. Beautiful panorama.

  • We spent a couple of hours between walk and visit just outside the base. Although we couldn't visit inside since it was closed, the place is worth visiting for the snowy landscape and the quiet walk you can do, as well as for the wonder that inspires children.

  • I visited the site many years ago when the base (American) was abandoned for years now. It was still interesting to see the hangars and imagine the activities that took place in the sixties/seventies during the cold war. Of all the buildings present remains only at the entrance. Now the site has been greatly reduced and the visitor can admire the 3 remaining missiles. Is still interesting to hear the stories of the elders of Folgaria and also see now more than 70 American pilots in the summer the jars for the country (some in uniform) because again they come back to find folgaretani friends!

  • Fantastic reconstruction activities of the cold war. The area occupied by ex-Based Thunder was reduced to a single base (there were three) exalting all transactions that were carried out at the operational level (training) and maintenance on ramps and missiles. An interesting itinerary inside explains how was prepared the basis and what were its duties and how is down. The guides are my greetings and thanks for the extensive explanations. A Team of volunteers with ex-air force staff (now retired), deals with the maintenance and recovery of aircraft serving in those years that will be housed in a new area attached to the Museum. To all who have been busy for the preparation of the Museum "Thunder" at local and regional level must be compliment. I hope the "Thunder" is the first of other museums that make us discover still belonging to the Nation Italy.

  • Former missile base turned into open air museum. Admission fee, but worth it. A visit with the Guide and I think for my children and for the guys who were with us was a history lesson on the cold war, unforgettable, touched with the hands. I recommend to all lovers of history.

  • Open air museum is unique in Europe. Reporting faithfully a former nato base at the time of the cold war. Admission charge with guided very prepared that demonstrates, explains the features of the former base with historical references. The simulation in the bunker of the launch rocket. Positioned the Nice Park with an artificial lake.

  • Definitely worth seeing, nice and well maintained. What you see and hear is worth 1000 times more than a good history book.

  • Faithful reconstruction, both in the original place that apparatus (specially purchased) of anti-aircraft missile base born and closed with the beginning and end of the cold war. The well prepared tour guides, will tell a 40ennio of technologies for defence against attack from the East. You should also visit the environmental context. PS. Only base left of several scattered throughout the Northeast gra plain and mountains.
