A story that needs to be told...and re-told
Feb 2019 • Solo
I was keen to visit this museum to learn about an aspect of World War Two which is not well known - the resistance of the people of Bologna to Fascism and the price many paid for this. This small museum tells its story extremely well and with both commitment and poignancy. Each room has a folder in English (and other major languages) which allows thorough understanding of the stories to be told. The volunteers who run it should be justifiably proud of their efforts.

Be careful to check out opening hours as these are quite limited.

Great exhibit
Nov 2018 • Friends
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 from the time period. We loved how they connected what was happening in bologna to the start of the fight against fascism in Spain. They also had a movie playing in one room and another room projecting photos onto the walls. Highly recommend to anyone insterested in this time of history.

Helps you understand What happened in Italy in the war
Sep 2018 • Couples
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 in Italy and the civil war in Spain. The maps showing who occupied which country at different times throughout WW2 were excellent. My only possible criticism is that the translation into English wasn’t always as good as it could be. In the first room - ‘anti fascism before resistance’ - it was excellent. It wasn’t as good elsewhere which did make it more difficult to understand. Especially if you don’t have an already good knowledge of WW2. That this museum is run by volunteers and is free is incredible. A very big thank you.

Original and pithy
Sep 2018 • Couples
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 illustrative history of people coming together against fascism through strong use of narrative. It’s definitely not for children but a wise parent might take teenagers and book a tour in advance.

A place that saves the memory.
Apr 2018 • Friends
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 to save the memory of those people who fought against fascism and, nowadays, we must not forget them

Amazing Free Museum
Mar 2018 • Couples
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 to read and take in (excellent English information sheets are provided) the story starts with the rise of Fascism and the Spanish Civil War then goes on to WW2 and what happened after 1943 when Italy was divided between German occupation in the north and the Allies in the south. It concentrates on the Resistance in and around Bologna. Very moving.

Worth a visit

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

Small but Worthy
Oct 2016 • Friends
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 glad to view it and our entire visit was about an hour because of closing time. Definitely could have stayed longer.

Better for Italian Speakers, I think
Oct 2016 • Family
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 in each room with English translations, the displays are organized so oddly and non-intuitively that it's exhausting trying to go back and forth from the card to the pictures, and figure out which text goes with which picture, and even harder to follow any sort of linear story of the Italian resistance and the brave men and women who were part of it.

Perhaps if I read Italian and could just read the captions it would have been more worthwhile -- as it was, it was just frustrating.
Oh, and there is a fourth room with a video, which was also quite unenlightening.

Could have been so interesting, if more thought had been given to presentation.
(It's also a bit hard to find, even with a GPS.)

small, but worth it
May 2016 • Couples
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.
