Additional information

The museum was opened on September 27, 2002 and opened to the public on August 12, 2003.

The exhibited materials are mainly owned by the Lanchedelli family (the fruit of 65 years of research), which is also in charge of management. The materials were mainly collected in the vicinity of the fort, at the site of fierce battles of 1915-1917, and are stored in some rooms.

The fort, which is an extremely interesting part of the museum, was built by the Austrians in 1897 to protect access to Val Badia and came under fire from Italian artillery in the early days of the war. Damaged and beyond repair, it was abandoned by the troops until the end of the war.

The museum’s exceptional geographical position makes it the ideal starting point for some of the most exciting excursions in the Dolomites, from Cinque Torri to Col di Lana, from Sass de Stria to Lagazuoi, along well-prepared routes that make the entire system an exceptional museum open air.
