Good place for family with children

I was here with my two kids (2 & 3), if you take cablecar from parking place both kids were able to go through the museum on their own. Especially the older boy was fascinated.

A Well Presented Self Guiding Open Air Museum
Sep 2017 • Couples
For the Military Buffs this is an opportunity to experience the very conditions and perspectives that the original combatants lived through. As a military objective, it is abundantly clear that neither side in WWI realistically had any change of overpowering the other. It is ideally visited in Summer when the snow is gone and the wild flowers are in bloom. The self guided tour starts at the top of the chair lift with a flat path leading down to the actual encampment site. The historic tour is well signposted and leads you through the exhibits in a coordinated manner. There are reconstructed gun emplacement features with both models and actual artillery. While the paths are well formed, they are made of and traverse natural rock with some steep climbing sections. A moderate level of fitness is required and it is NOT wheelchair accessible. Taken at a steady pace, reading all the signage, pausing to appreciate the views and flowers, takes about 1 hour.

Great Outdoor WW1 Museum
Sep 2017 • Friends
We hiked thru the Museo all'Aperto delle 5 Torri near the Cinque Torri area. There were many trenches & other remnants from the WW1 conflict between the Italians & the Austrians. Its hard to imagine their was a major war going on in such an inhospitable environment. It was very interesting to me.

Fascinating history, fantastic views
Aug 2017 • Solo
If you are all interested in WWI history, don't miss this "open air museum"! Restored bunkers, trenches, powder magazines, lots of good waysides in English, historic photos and quotes from soldiers stationed there, and amazing views in all directions. If you combine this with a trip just across the pass to Lagazuoi Galleria (the tunnel inside the mountain) and the Martini Ledge (on Lagazuoi), you'll be experiencing both sides of the front lines.

This museum is an easy 20 minute walk from Passo Falzarego/Lagazuoi (take trail 424 that parallels the road). You can take the ski lift straight there from the Baita Bai de Dones Restaurant -- about 12 euros RT, I think, or take the lift up and hike back down along what looked like a pleasant and easy trail.

It's also a popular place for rock climbers so it's interesting to watch them scaling the Five Towers of rocks. There is a cafe at the top of the ski lift with drinks and food. The last ski lift down is at 5:00 pm. You can catch the bus back to Cortina at the intersection of the main road and the driveway to the restaurant (about a 5 minute walk from the bottom of the chairlift).

This was one of the highlights of my trip since I'm both an avid hiker and a history buff.

A MUST-DO tribute
Aug 2017 • Family
You can immerge yourself in the immense scenery of the Dolomites theatre of one of the cruelest moment in our history : the tour of trenches is a touchy experience to revive the sufferings and heroic gestures of our grandfathers. Particularly vivid in this period when skillful alpine guides will accompany you on the walks.

Amazing museum in the middle of the mountains

It was worth it to take a detour from our hike to see the trenches and simulation spots depicting World War 1. Lots of history.
