    Very interesting and very complete tour. Visiting this kind of museums is an excellent way to understand more in depth the history of the second war. With the help of the guide the experience becomes much better.

    The museum is not very big but it is very rich in exhibits and information about the Second World War. I highly recommend visiting it at least once.

    I would have liked to see the factory better preserved, maybe I was wrong with what I expected to find in the museum. In spite of this it was a good experience, I don't regret taking the tour although I was expecting something different.

    A museum that transports you to the WWII era with amazing exhibits and a very professional guide. More than recommended for everyone, these tours always leave a lot of teachings about history.
