This is a great little museum that tells about the evolution of troops in the Alps. There is an audioguide that is activated when you enter each room, and it is well thought-out with lots to look at and hear about. It exceed expectations.

We visited this creatively presented museum with our primary school aged children. I'm not usually a fan of audio tours but is essential for the multi-media displays and has been very well done. I enjoyed this little museum - it was just the right mix...More

I didn't expect much when entering the museum - what a wonderful surprise! Excellent disposition, top technology. The way facts were exposed made my 5-year-old LOVE the place and understand almost all of it. Highly recommended.
