  • Surprising technical Museum in which technological objects are displayed from electric motors, vehicles, mining, electrronica, etc... Very educational and entertaining. Highlight the section of Nikola Tesla. The only drawback to him vi was updating the content. I think that years ago that they add no new parts.

  • This museum has only recently started to present the inventions of Nikola Tesla, who was born in Croatia. Especially impressively planes that are exposed  more »
  • The Museum is very interesting, in half an hour you visit, nice Department dedicated to Nikola Tesla but in January when I visited it I the temperature inside was very similar to the outer one, very annoying.

  • 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.
