At Kobarid Museum learn about one of the bloodiest battles of World War I, which Ernest Hemingway vividly described in his novel "A Farewell to Arms." Unlike most of the battles, which were fought in the trenches, this one took place on hilly terrain. A very modern two-building complex houses graphic exhibits documenting the course of the fighting and the lives of soldiers. See photographs, uniforms, weapons, personal items, maps, and large landscape models. Most of the text is in English and you can also watch a 10-minute film in several languages to get the big picture.

Loved the experience. As a Slovene I know a lot about I. World War and the monstrosities that happened in this area, but to read all the stories in the museum and see what it was like for young man... more »
It's a historical and very informative museum. It gives a good and impressive overview of the Great War and the impact it had on this area. Don't miss it if you are interested in the WWI, you'll see how difficult was to be in this area during the conflict. Must not miss this place!
Full of history of the great war, it's easy to get a clearer picture of the events and tragedies as they happened. Displays are translated into multiple languages so it's easy to follow. Very picturesque drive to Kobarid from Cividale in Italy.
A very large museum where you easily can spend about 2 hours. A wide variety of interesting material from Kobarid and the surrounding area. Especially the parts about the WW1 battles around the city are quite interesting and for me unknown. One remark is that there isn't a clear storyline in the museum, they try to show as much as possible.
We must not forget our history. We must teach our children. And seeing this museum is a sobering, chilling experience. You must be morally prepared as you proceed further and further up the museum's floors, the harder it gets to keep your eyes dry... War is hell.
Very educational museum about an important battle in ww1. Really educational and informative. A bit small, but really well worth the visit
