Kobariški muzej d.o.o., Kobarid

4.7
#1 of 51 in Museums in Slovenia
At Kobariški muzej d.o.o. 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.

  • By history buff, I visited a considerable amount of thematic museums. This Museum of Kobarid has its strength in the ability to explain: firstly, the war and its dramatic consequences on the life (and death) of the soldiers. For military history buffs, or just for Italians who always wonder what happened, here is the answer: the display fixtures, a great movie done well in many languages and, above all, a huge plastic "animated" of the battle, can understand. The Museum alone worth a trip to Slovenia.
