  • The Museum takes advantage of the former barracks of the "Murge" artillery and although there is a Pavilion new, everything around is crumbling if not abandoned, the entrance from via Cumano is from the third world. Remember the collection of wagons and various weapons of professor de Henriquez with many scattered pieces to the carso, instead to the Museum there are a minimum number! Also a part of the upper room was empty. Shame as the collection de Henriquez is almost boundless as regards weapons, uniforms, documents and a thousand other things!

  • The Museum has an impressive collection of military equipment, from tanks to their uniforms, with some memorabilia of significant historical importance at European level (la giubba of Franz Joseph, a uniform complete with a volunteer irredentist triestino, Trieste, la giubba fascism memorabilia of German General Commander of Trieste, just to name a few) the collection of heavy vehicles is currently not open to the public. Too bad because this is one of the most important collections of armour at European level, with some rare pieces. The overall layout is not the most satisfactory: some important pieces are not properly valued and very often do not understand what path to follow, finding himself to jump across distant historical periods. Unfortunately, for those accustomed to visiting military museums around Europe, the museo De Henriquez is really disappointing. In addition, the exterior of the former barracks is still unsafe and if you're visiting the nearby natural history museum, cross the piazza D'Armi in complete desolation and sense of abandonment. The structure in which the Museum is pitiful: instead of retrieving the building of barracks in his original appearance, was built a pitiful sheet metal roofing, which in summer does nothing but increase the heat inside the Museum. Despite the inauguration is recent, there is a certain air of decadence, perhaps due to the rest of the former barracks that is abandoned to itself. An interactive part is missing, to try to convey the story to children or those who are not keen and has no interest in seeing a static series of memorabilia: other European museums is almost always an area dedicated to temporary exhibitions, conferences or presentations librarie, which here seems to be missing (or not used as it should). Hopefully in the future the city of Trieste, the Museum's owner, can expose the whole collection of armoured vehicles in a manner worthy and you work more on interactivity of the Museum, so it does not become like so many other Italian military museums, static and aseptic.

  • The pieces collected show a glimpse of the past really outstanding that are even more enhanced by view reflection on war. It is worth the ticket and take advantage of the natural history museum located in the same complex.

  • Great Museum about WW1 and 2 and alot of info about the battles that took place in the greater area. Also alittle info about the few Nazis left in Trieste at the end of ww2 that would only surrender to the New Zealand Troops as the Partisans and Yoguslav Army would have killed them after Surrendering. Pretty cool i must say!
  • For current and future generations, which haven't seen nothing like what happened in the great war, is very useful. Good collection.
