  • Well-intentioned museum, but if the objective is to reach an international audience, not just Italians, there needs to be a language option. English tends to be the international common denominator...  more »

  • AMAZING MUSEUM! Absolutely astonishing! It's beautiful, well made and very informative. The only downside is that it is mostly in Italian and it sometimes misses the English translations which made it hard to keep up for us. Still a recommendation though
  • A very good museum about the allied invasion of Sicily and of Sicily at war. There were exhibits of all the major groups involved including a Canadian division. I didn't know anything about Sicily in WW2 . You go through the exhibits in order. It starts with a short movie with background information up to just before the invasion. Then you go through so recreations of Sicily at that time including an interesting minute is a recreation of a bomb shelter. I would say about half the stuff was in Italian and English, and half Italian only. It was good though and I learned a lot. If you can it is worth a visit.
