  • Excellent museum! Everything is so well explained and set that we were so happy about it. The tickets are super cheap for what the museum is. It should be mentioned in every city guide. Historically, it starts with austro hungarian empire and it is until today. For me, knowing more about the history of this area was really worth it. I really recommend this place!
  • Incredibly well done. Lots of interactive material and just enough detail. The WW1 bunker was good and the exploration of the rise and fall of Yugoslavia is well presented. I was surprised to see the museum very quiet as I think anyone visiting Slovenia should visit.
