We really enjoyed our visit to this museum! The exhibits were in Italian but there is a packet of everything translated to English to pick up as you enter each room. It's a small museum but it holds a lot of information, photos, and posters...More

The focus of the museum is to explain the role of italian/bolognan resistance in WW 2. But it does so much more than this. For me (a rather ignorant 60+ English woman) it helped me understand what happened in Europe before the war with Mussolini...More

We found this totally by accident and were absolutely blown away by this marvellous little gem. It doesn’t take long (about an hour, tops) to go through the rooms and every display panel is translated on handouts into multiple languages (including English obviously) It’s an...More

A small museum but very interesting for those who love modern history, especially for those who don't forgive and don't forget the crimes made by nazism and fascism. Knowing the "small history" of the partisan movement in Bologna area is one thing. The other is...More

We happened on this place by chance and I'm so glad we did. It is only open in the afternoons from 3.30 -6.00 and on Saturday mornings. Neither of us knew much about Italy during WW2 but this museum changed that. There is a lot...More

Tells the story well, but not much information for English speaking visitors. If you are in the area worth stopping in.

Worthy of your time if you are interested in WWII history as it affected parts of Italy. The museum is small and staffed for limited hours by volunteers. The exhibits are multi-lingual and the progression of hostilities and resistance is easy to follow. We were...More

Both the reviews here and the website promised an interesting and probably moving experience. The reality, however, was quite different .. and rather disappointing. 3 rooms of wall displays of photographs of photographs, articles and documents. Captions are all in Italian. While there are cards...More

there are just four rooms in this museum, but they are worth the visit. each room offers English information factsheets, and you will get a good impression of the Partisans fight against Fascism and Nazi occupation.

We've visited resistance museums throughout Europe. This is an excellent one. Definitely worth a visit because it takes a more individual/personal view of the Resistance. Although many of the exhibits are in Italian only, you still have a sense of what individuals went through as...More

Dear Visitor, we thank you a lot for your positive review, and we are glad you appreciated the trip inside our Museum. We just need to point out that every room, just close to the entrance, is equipped with complete english translations of the exhibits,...More
