Best Izonso / soca battle front museum

Just fabulous - helps if you are a WWI buff. Otherwise just brilliant. Great exhibits and fantastic terrain models that clearly explains a war is such an idyllic place.

Enjoyed a wonderful tour of this impressive museum. The setting of Kobarid itself is impressive: not very far from Ljubljana, yet one steep crosses mountain passes with ease in a modern van on a sunny day. The museum brings to life the contrasts of the battles fought over a century ago, by soldiers mandated by emperors to bleed out for... More

Worth a visit place in Kobarid. Good exposition about the Caporetto battle and the war in general. A short movie is also recommended.

Already the tour through the valley of the Soca river is nice experience. We are going from Ljubljana to Kobarid.The Museum presents the First World War on the Isonzo Front, focusing on the Twelfth Isonzo Battle, known as the Battle of Kobarid. The battle turned into one of the most violent encounters in the history of this mountainous region and,... More

Well organised with very helpful people. Clean, modern and very informative of the war zone that probably most of us know nothing about.

Such a well presented Museum covering a little-known, tragic WW1 battleground over the peaks of the beautiful Julian Alps. Beautifully covered in different languages with details on soldiers and their diaries. Yes, we bought/read a copy of Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms - not as interesting as the museum.
