  • Great, succinct museum in a place charged with heavy, too recent history. Definitely worth a visit. Plan about 30-40 mins. Audioguides currently unavailable due to covid.
  • Very tastefully done museum of a concentration camp. We're glad we got to visit and learned a lot about the WWII events in Italy.
