  • If a must-see Museum if you're interested in technology. In addition, profession related to technology or technology that may be useful in the field of education and for those who have special exhibitions in the Museum's capacity is the most important feature of the technology of steam ... from space technology gives the possibility of scrutinizing the as. In addition, kids, groups of students and for those who are interested in informative Museum CineVision shows available on the top floor there's a field where children amused I traveled with my father ögrenebilecekleri. Very entertaining and instructive visit. 2-3 hours when listening to music. The only shortage of brochures and CineVision shows English, though not a descriptive sign in English of each piece. Enjoy history and technology.

  • Is really something that you don't expect in a museum. Is Zagreb in Croatia so in Europe? Or someone don't like to declare how much they get? The direction of this museum should wake up! I've lost tim...  more »
  • We arrived just before 16:00, about one hour before clinging of the museum. We had looked forward to see the mine, which was closed and only open at 11 and 15 o'clock for a shorter period of time. The...  more »

  • Fascinating place for both kids and adults. Plenty of old-school machine innards and vehicles to look at. The trip down the mine is fun, but taller people will end up with a bad back! There is a great interactive exhibition with a Faraday cage, whereby volunteers (kids) can go up front and stand in a cage while electricity rubs through it. Sound dangerous? Nope! It's really good fun for them. I'd never been in a planetarium before, but they have one here. It's probably half an hour long or so that you sit in it, but I found it a bit tedious. Kids must qualify as nerds to patiently participate! Just bear in mind that, although the museum staff can speak in English, everything is presented in Croatian, so you have to use your imagination a bit!
  • Great staff, kids loved it, a lot of really interesting things and topics covered. They have live bee hive for kids to see how it works.
  • Great little museum with enthusiastic staff and a chance to see Tesla coils fired up!
  • Very nice museum, not big, but you should wait for guided tours. In that case you can see Tesla transformator or go inside mine.
  • Defintitely a great Museum to experience tech (r)evolution of the last century: Cars, Trains, Airplanes and Submarines, Spacecrafts, and a lot more: Oil Rigs, Mining, Agriculture, Cemistry,... A good lession of physics, Engineering, and of course: Mr. Tesla. That's science, B****! ;-) It could have a bit more descriptions in english or deutsch, though - But great for kids too!

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
