  • 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.

  • 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.
  • As a tech and engineer enthusiast, one could spend a whole day inside. There is a very interesting display of old steam engines, old cars, firefighter equipment, airplanes, airplane engines, a whole timeline of mining industry, as well as a planetarium and the most interesting thing for me personally, an interactive exhibit showing life's work of Nikola Tesla. I would say this museum is a local pride and would benefit greatly from a renovation process.
  • Remembering the long turbulent trouble history of this area the tech at the museum is a bright spot in the educational opportunities for the students of this area. I have seen a number of these museums in the United States and the bread of technologies is exceptional for the resources that they have. I command the founders and supporters of this project I was there in May 2015 with my wife
  • An interesting and cheap museum.
