  • Great museum with many of interactive parts. Loved the exhibition of mobile phones. They also have a interaktive screen where you can play some games. They also organize worshops for kids, families and elderly. You can even have a birthday party experience.
  • Za otroke zastonj. Veliko stvari, ki jih danasnja mladež ne pozna.
