Sebastian Winged Neko KippVisit date: from 2007 to 2014, each during the summer holidays. Great Museum, especially about the first world war and the Insonzo battles around Tolmin and Kobarid. Extremely well sorted and with scary and gloomy exhibits and interactive exhibits. Multilingual run (Slovenian, Italian, English, German...). Including cinema room with original footage and short documentaries. In the aftermath of the first WK, the WW2 period and the time of the USSR is offered, also, so it is but smaller. At least a half-day schedule for the visit, otherwise it is only a "race by".show original
