Forte di Bard, Bard
A fortified castle built in the 19th century by the House of Savoy, Forte di Bard reopened in 2006 as the Museum of the Alps. Although the main structure dates from the 19th century, the complex is built atop the foundations of a fifth- and tenth-century castle complex. The fortress repelled Napoleon's army of 40,000 with a mere 400 soldiers manning the castle. Visit the museum to learn more about the castle's defenses and the Alps.

We explored the areas open to the public and not the exhibits and we did the virtual climb to Alpe of boys, a little dated but still a fun experience and staff! Possibility to have lunch in the different bars located in the village offering platters and sandwiches or hot dishes in the cafeteria at the top of the Fort or dishes in the restaurant in the last descent, although the menu is a bit pricey. We will be back maybe to coincide with any event, go for it!
Amazing place! The first fort in Bard could be traced to more than one thousand years ago. The fort we can visit now is reconstructed after the war with Napoleon. The feeling visiting here is very good. You can choose to reach the fort by the free lift or on foot. There are four museums inside: fortifications and frontiers museum, the museum of the Alps, prison museum and natural history museum. The fortifications and frontiers museum is more interesting in my opinion. The museum offers short movies based on the exhibits of the room you are visiting. That is very interesting.
Nice views and a great wildlife photography exhibition. Worth a walk up through the Borgo. Informative screens telling about the history of the valley and place. Staff is friendly and it's so big that it seems rather empty despite a Saturday with quite a few visitors.
