My father was involved in the landings at Salerno.I was anxious to visit this museum and see what my father never talked about. After an hour or so of walking around Salerno to find the tourist info center, I was told to take the train to Arecci. Now to try and find this museum, that the locals never heard about.... More

Not sure how bad people's sense of direction or detective skills are, but this museum was very easy to find! Myself and my fiancé were on a 5 day trip to Naples, and after a little Internet research, decided a day trip to Salerno was not to be missed. My grandfather fought at Salerno, as he served in The Royal... More

My grandfather was a part of this invasion. The hospitality is was fantastic. Apart from the video, almost everything is in Italian. I am glad I went.

Sadly closed for the week but judging the outside exhibits it looks worth a visit. I thought I'd clear up its location. Travelling by car south along via Mark Wayne Clark the Novotel is on your left on the roundabout. Go straight ahead with hotel on your left and the next building on your left 100m and yellow is a...

As I have a keen interest in military history and was in Naples I thought I would go to the museum given Salerno's importance in the Allied invasion of mainland Italy in WW2. It wasn't open at the advertised time and I was told to come back at 6pm which I did (after having the hotel reception phone to confirm... More

Travelled from England to Sorrento and then from Sorrento to Salerno just to find the museum closed due to a local Derby football match- not sure why the museum had to close because of this. I was really looking forward to visiting as my Dad took part in the landings. When I commented on the Facebook page to say it... More

Salerno and the Amalfi Coast offer some of the most incredible scenery on the planet, but if you're interested in the region's history, this relatively new museum offers a great opportunity to learn about one of the lesser-known, yet vitally important operations of World War II. At the time, Operation Avalanche was the largest amphibious invasion in history (later overtaken... More

Tried unsuccessfully to find this place today,asked two groups of locals and no one had heard of it. You need some signs and publicity if you want people to visit you.

The museum itself is fantastic. Will take you( if an avid buff like me) about two hours, maybe a little less. TOUGH to get to. From downtown, we took a cab. It took awhile for someone at the cab stand at the train station to figure out where it was. Was about 15 euro to get there and I had... More
