Perhaps I'm not the best person to review this place because we were only here because they provide free motorhome overnight parking (including electric hook-up) if you buy a ticket. Five stars for the motorhome accommodation but the museum seemed to me to be a...More
Museum is very comprehensive, covering military on ex Yugoslavia and Slovenia geography. Lots of tanks, guns, and airplanes from propeller driven to jets. MIG21 is the real stuff, and full VR googles driven simulator where you are put in real jet seat and all handling....More
We planned our yearly trip to the Balkans with visiting this museum on the way home. It was absolutely fantastic.
This museum houses tons of vehicles, arms and smaller displays not to mention an entire technical depot where you can find rows of machinery, computers...More

We were very pleasantly surprised despite the wind and the weather is a museum worth seeing. Very nice shop and buffet. Take a look at the submarine. Suitable for children. The guides are very enthusiastic
