The purpose of this museum of First World is to represent the war events and their human and social influences. After an introduction on the First World War, attention is focused on the events on the War front along the Isonzo: besides the weapons and arms there are also objects related to the daily life of the soldiers and a real life reconstruction of a trench. Then there is the documentation of the situation in Gorizia, a real "trenchtown" and the description of the 1917 and 1918 events, until the armistice between Italy and Austria on the 3rd of November. The First World War museum includes an area dedicated to General Armando Diaz, with an exhibition of documents, medals and other objects.

Few British people know much if anything about the Southern Front conflict in WW1 between Italian and Austrian troops. This wonderful museum captures the full horror of the fighting with photos, weapons and reconstructions of trench warfare. It includes an amazing collection of cartoons published...More

Located in the centre of Gorizia on a small hill (fyi, Gorizia means 'small hill') and reachable only by car or walking, this museum shows us a part of this town that is very difficult to know otherwise: WWI and its tragic consequences. Detailed information,...More

Very informative place, without the rhetoric which is sometimes found in similar places. The various aspects of a war (political, military and human) are well presented for both sides in the conflict.

We are both interested in the First World War which is why we made a day trip to Gorizia from Trieste to visit this museum - its a twenty five minute walk from the station. We were not disappointed - the displays looked to us...More

The quality of exhibits is superb. The "bunker" has been recreated with sound mimicking what the soldiers would have heard around them.

We visited Gorizia because it is mentioned in Hemingway's book, and we read it had a WWI Museum. The Museum of the Great War was superb. Sometimes these local museums are too much or too little, or too academic or too fascile. The Museum of...More

My review concerns only the "War Museum", because I've only seen this. Although in my opinion it is not up - for museological quality - the similar Museums I've seen in Rovereto (Italy) and in Kobarid (Slovenia), it is still decent, and allows an adequate...More
