In the ethnographic museum “Cemout chi erin” (The Way We Were) of the small municipality of Forni Avoltri, a permanent exibition is mounted on the Great War in the valley Alta Val Degano and the nearby Mts. Navagiust, Avanza, Chiadenis and the Volaia/Wolaya and Cacciatore passes. Of particular interest is a collection of postcards and photographs featuring the life of soldiers and the place of Forni Avoltri during the war. In addition, a reconstruction of the tunnel with bunks which was discovered in 2007 on Mt. Navagiust can also be seen in the museum.
