  • It's in a big old barn of a building with a big open space in the centre. There are lots of machines of one kind or another, and a variety of aeroplanes, trams, and cars. The Tesla show is worthwhile ...  more »
  • So it's a bit old fashioned in places and freezing cold, but I still thought it was great. I'm not a fan of mechanical things, so this set of small displays was just right; enough to pique the interes...  more »
  • Even if the Museum at first glance appears to be rather small, one notices for closer viewing, that there are many highly interesting exhibits are. So a unkarrossierter Mercedes SSK is quite inconspicuous (it doesn't even have tires); There are several aircraft built in Yugoslavia, including a newer Microlight; There is a rotary engine from 1949, some highly interesting steam machines, unfortunately with too little information about the builders, and many electronic devices, up to the Commodore Pet 2001 computer.

  • Museum of Technics is always a fun and interesting way of spending an afternoon or even the whole day. Don't miss the miners tunnels built by the students and their professors from the Mining, Geology and Oil faculty during the socialist era. They built it on their own, to show different solutions to mining tunnels and present the miners life to an average citizen.
  • If you are tired of random museum where you can only look at the works of art come here. It has a really nice collection, a Tesla section and before you enter check out the statue of Dražen Petrović next to the Cibona tower. Why? Because if you enter a mine which is located underneath the Technical Museum it ends right underneath that statue. Highly recommend the place, especially if you catch it during some of the educational programs being held there. Stars or electricity both are a great fun for the whole family, groups of people of personally to enjoy!
  • Great staff and cute museum! The downside is that is Not really made for children as you can't touch anything. Engineers will love the museum but it's a bit oldfashion and not really prepared for kids. Worth checking the mine replica!! Even Though we had no translation to english for the Tesla workshop presentation it's very well done!
  • If you are even remotely interested in tech stuff, this is a must visit while in Zagreb. Excellent for kids. Wish I had such interactive and updated exhibits as a kid.
  • Great staff but the exhibition is not big. Worth to see a replica of a coal mine and the Tesla laboratory. Trivia: The Technical Museum Zagreb is one of the biggest buildings in this part of Europe made entirely of wood.
