ANZIO BEACHHEAD MUSEUM
Entrance to the museum
The Anzio Beachhead Museum was open in January 1994, on the fiftieth anniversary of the Anzio landings. It is located in one of the ground floor rooms of the Villa Adele, in the centre of the town and close to the railway station. There is parking in the streets close by.
The main museum gallery.
While only one room, it is packed with artifacts, photographs and uniforms. One feature I particularly liked were the personal photos of American and British veterans who had fought here. Much of the material is themed, and there is a short US film about the Anzio landings you can also watch as part of your visit.
The museum is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. In the Winter months the hours are: 10.00-12.30 and 16.00-18.00. In the Summer they are: 10.00-12.30 and 17.00-19.00. Entrance is free.
