  • The most detailed WWI/WWII museum I've seen in the Vicenza city/outskirt area. Outsides you can see tanks, trucks, planes and various artillery that were used in the Italian, USA, and other countries military. Inside there are two rooms that highlight local heroes: There is an area dedicated to one the first woman in the Triveneto that got a flying patent in Early 1900s; an American who's plane crashed who was rescued by the partisans but ultimately shot by the enemy; and a pilot that flew from Italy to Japan. I especially liked the American WWI uniform of the brigade that was in the Veneto...and the patch of what would be the blueprint for the SETAF:) Upstairs you walk through the " trenches"..and then you end the visit by seeing the Fiat 2000 ( fiat did everything!)-One of the two Italian tanks model used during WWI!! Apparently this is the only existing replica of the model which was built by the volunteers in 2017. They can organize tours in English if you call a few days in advance.
  • What an extraordinary museum. Worth the visit!
