  • I have been to this museum with my daughter several times in a time period of over a decade. It is just amazing how children react to well presented and educationally well founded materials. But it is not just for children. Technically and historically savvy persons can find here really a lot of interesting and aesthetically pleasing things. Strongly recommend place for several hours of quality learning experience.
  • It's a very nice place with historical museum and a restaurant just opposite it.It's got a wide parking area and a great view of surroundings. You can go to the museum and see old cars of Titto(ex -Yugoslavia president) and so many other historical things. The restaurant here has got a warm and friendly staff with great customer care.
