Even before the formation of the Ustanova »Fundacija Poti miru v Posočju« (»Walks of Peace in the Soča Region Foundation«), individual history and tourist societies in the Soča region began to restore and arrange individual sections of the frontline. The Foundation joined the initiatives of these societies and began to arrange six outdoor museums. They are situated at those parts of the frontline where the density of remains is greater and the access is relatively easy.
In order to bring these societies, activities, related to the preservation, restoration and presentation of remains, as close as possible to the requirements of expert services, the Foundation established connections with the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage and various experts in the field of preservation of cultural heritage.
The outdoor museums have not been completely arranged yet. Most of them lie in the mountains, which means that everybody walks in these areas at their own responsibility. Mountaineering clothing and footwear are recommended, and also a hand lamp, because there are caves in all these areas.
Visitors are requested to be respectful to natural and cultural heritage and not to take any remains of the First World War away. Only thus other visitors can also see them.
Outdoor museums can also be visited with a guide.
