Great museum
Jun 2019
I visited Piana delle Orme numerous times, and every time I manage to notice something new, is such an extensive collection of war memorabilia. If you are passionate about history this is the place.

This is a place not to be missed if you love history.The amount and quality of the displays is really something special.Plan to spend several hours there.The cafeteria is good but I was not crazy about the food.But then Italy was not my favorite place for food.

The area and time span covered by the museum needs anywhere from 3 to 6 hrs to visit in detail. And the cafeteria restaurant is good quality. To be enjoyed.

Amazing Museum
Oct 2018 • Couples
We visited this museum as part of a tour of the Monte Cassino and Anzio battlefields with Dr. Danila Bracaglia. It is a gem! The museum contains dioramas depicting rural life in the area including the draining of the Pontine marshes. We were there for the World War II exhibits and were astonished at the enormous number of military equipment and vehicles on display. We've never seen that many in one place before, many of which were very rare. Dioramas told the story of the allied campaign in Italy as well as the Italian campaigns in Africa. We only saw a portion of this museum in our 2 hour visit. It is incredibly well done and we are so happy it was included in our tour.

So much to see and in lovely surroundings
Sep 2018 • Family
Three generations of our family spent an afternoon here, we really needed a whole day to do it justice! There is so much to see, the exhibits are so beautifully presented with artwork to bring them to life. We were very impressed. The war section is poignant and interesting. Only downside is that we spent so much time in the hangers we didn't get to visit the shop! We will definitely be back.

if you like history this is the place

If you don't have a time machine , come here and you'll experience what the italians in this area have experienced during the second world war.
This is probably the most well kept war meseum in Italy, due to the fact that is privately owened. The founder has collected thousand of war vehicles which are on display together with photographs and weapons found in this area which was the centre of major battles beetwen the german army and the alllied forces. Cassino , Gustaf LIne, Hitler Line, and Anzio.You can spend an incredible day with your family visiting the museum, dining under the shade of eucalyptus and shopping at the huge military shop where you can find old uniforms, helmets and much much more, an Aladin caves for enthusiasts. I'll definatevely be back

Amazing and diverse private museum!
Aug 2017
If you want to know about pontine swamps and how these mallaria infected area was eventually colonized, you have to visit this place. Furthermore the founder had a true passion for WWII history, you can find several compounds dedicated to specific episodes that occurred in the area. There is also a collection of old military vehicles. To let yourself be fooled by the sloppy entrance. Prepare yourself to spend an entire day. There are sever pavilions and I recommend you visit all of them.

A hidden gem
Aug 2017 • Family
A museum we only knew about through trip advisor. The exhibitions where well laid out and very informative. From the history of the area to the events of world war 2 in Italy.
A great museum with a fantastic array of vehicles etc.
Well worth a visit.

Museum near Latino, which covers WW2 and the battle of Anzio
Jun 2017
This museum is huge. I did not manage more than 2 or 3 hangars in the 2 hours I was there. It is well laid out and tells an excellent story of WW2 in Italy, especially the battle of Anzio, Monte Cassino and the route to Rome. Although in Latino and a little way out of Neptune it is worth the visit. Also has an excellent cafe and a military second hand shop to cater for most tastes, including ardent re-enactors.

Unique
Sep 2016 • Solo
The museum, even though does not look as such because of the "buildings" that really do not recall a museum at all, is simply unique, it is like a jump in the past. You can literally walk in detailed scenarios of the 19/20th centuries: farms, barracks, battle fields where you will find real equipments, weapons and even tanks and other machines from the 2nd World War...(some of them were used to film amazing movies too).

The atmosphere is captivating whether you are visiting a war scenario or even if you are visiting the old toys installation. Not to mention the Pontina swamps remediation settings!

Absolutely worth a visit and even more than one if you can. If only I knew about such a museum when I was a student I would have loved to visit it and feel and touch and smell what I was just reading on books at school.

My only advice is to visit the place whenever you prefer, but possibly not in July or August because the temperature can get very, very high indoor.

The price is very reasonable.
