At Kobarid Museum 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.

We visited the museum after 20+ years. It has changed a lot, modernized. It is a great museum and a huge reminder of what a human should never repeat. more »
It's a historical and very informative museum. It gives a good and impressive overview of the Great War and the impact it had on this area. Don't miss it if you are interested in the WWI, you'll see how difficult was to be in this area during the conflict. Must not miss this place!
Full of history of the great war, it's easy to get a clearer picture of the events and tragedies as they happened. Displays are translated into multiple languages so it's easy to follow. Very picturesque drive to Kobarid from Cividale in Italy.
