The museum holds an exposure of over 50 military vehicles of historic interest.

THE MOPPING UP OF THE TODT
In this scene we see recruitment of the civilians from the organisation of Genio Militare ("Military Genius") founded by Fritz Todt in 1933. A German officer calls the roll while the civilians load the work tools on the lorries (Phanomen) and they prepare themselves to go building the Gothic Line’s fortifications. Sound and light effects envelope and take us to that time rending us protagonist of the scene.

THE SHELTER
The shelter faithfully rebuilt in the city with the co-operation of Edo Ansaloni’s diary is going to let us live again the bombardment through special effects, lights and sounds.

THE BOMBARDMENT
This scene reproduces the disastrous effects of the bombing on the civilians’ houses and the desperation in finding the destroyed objects which belonged to the every-day life.

THE BATTLE OF PORTA LAME
The partisans break the tight surrounding of the Germans and of the R.S.I soldiers passing through the channel of Cavaticcio, helped by the fog and the smoke grenades.

THE TENTH FROM THE MOUNTAIN
This is a reproduction of the famous climbing of "Riva Ridge" that started the breakthrough of the Gothic Line and opened the access to the Belvedere Mount and to the liberation of northern Italy.
