  • The best place to visit, if you come to Pivka. Great exibitions, a lot of thing to see. Very nice and professional people!
  • Best war museum in Slovenia. Tanks, planes, artilelery, Guns, gas masks, uniforms and even a submarine. WW2 exposition is good, even 88 mm flack gun. Interesting exposition about Slovenian war history in Yugoslavia and war for independance. Kind staff and lots of merchandise.
  • Fun for adults and kids. Interesting history lesson, flight simulator, submarine experience, you name it. Unbelievably friendly and informative staff. Definitely worth a visit!
  • If you are interested in military equipment from the second world war, you will love this place. They have a better than you expect selection of WW2 tanks and self propelled guns, small arms, recoiless rifles, anti tank guns and artillery. They also have a more modern exhibition that talks about Slovenia's independence along with the equipment used in that period. There is a small submarine tour also available that runs at specific times of the day in both English and Slovene.
