Excellent collection of molluscs with detailed and exhaustive information about them. A gentleman working there (Mr Simič) takes his time to inform visitors and answer their questions.

Amazing!!. 5000 pieces, 20 percent of the collection. Descriptions only in Slovenian, but they provided us with an English guide. Only $4 admission. To see thesewonders of nature, it is well worth it
A hidden gem! A really lovely little museum, beautifully laid out and really interesting. The staff are fantastic, and really know their stuff. It's hidden away amongst the shops and cafes, but is definitely worth a visit.
