National History Museum of Alpine Soldiers

The history of the Italian mountain corps on the Doss di Trento

The so-called “Museo Storico degli Alpini” nestles on the Doss di Trento hill that towers above the city of Trento and was inhabited by ancient populations already in the neolithic age. During the Roman era and later, it served as a military stronghold for the people living in the Val d’Adige Valley.

The museum introduces the visitors to the fascinating history of the Alpini, the highly decorated and elite mountain corps of the Italian Army. Exhibitions include some papers, publications and illustrations as well as valuable portraits of Italian generals and commanders.

Opening hours:
Tuesday to Thursday, 9 am - 12 am, 1 pm - 4 pm
Friday to Sunday: 9 am - 12 am, 1pm - 5pm

Attention: the museum has been closed for restoration work! The objects can be viewed in the Torre Vanga in Trento until the work is completed.
