  • Not being a militant person I welcomed the initiative to visit this museum. Its content is as militaristic as well as historic, maybe even more so. I would recommend the visit of the submarine and...

  • The people that work there are very professional and super nice. Interesting exhibitions for elderly people and young kids as well. The prices are cheap in comparison to other museums.

  • Beautiful museum with lots of history about multiple wars. Lots of interesting things to see and so much information. There is also another museum within and for only 2 euros extra you can visit it with many old electronics and other household items to check out. Certainly worth it. We also tried the spitfire VR experience and it was pretty nice. They have multiple simulation experiences for you to try for an additional fee. 10 euros for the spitfire experience. Big recommendation if you like the history.
  • Great museum! A lot to see and learn. If you are interested you can spend a whole day there. Nice food in restaurant. Dogs allowed in most of the buildings. Submarine and flight simulator need reservation.
  • A wonderful museum with interesting piceses ranging from a Yugoslav submarine all the way to a MIG-21 and a M-84 main battle tank. There is also a vintage military canteen where you can get something to eat and drink. Great for a family visit.
  • The museum is very easy to find, as it lies next to the main road. A very good insight into military history as well as other technical things that surrounded us. I recommend calling before visiting if you want to try out the simulator, as they have two, one with a mig jet, the other with a motor. It is necessary to make a reservation for the simulator because they assign you an hour. I also recommend calling to see the submarine, where they also set the time. Preferably with a time gap, because the museum is big and there are really many things to look at. There is also a path to the fort outside. Expect at least 2-3 hours, and they also have an inn.
  • Very good military museum with a lot of exhibits from diffrent periods. There is a special section about war for Slovenia. Especially interesting is guided submarine tour, which you must book in advance. You can also try fight simulator. Its worth wisiting with kids or without if you are into military theme.
