The museum occupies a cave that was once used as headquarters
by Rommel when he conducted the North African wars. This cave
was originally cut in the Roman
era and used to store grains due to its ideal position on
the Paraetonium ancient seaport.
The museum contains several possessions of the German commander
like his compass, overcoat, photographs, maps and clothes trunk.
Rommel's son dedicated many of the museum contents.
