  • The entrance is hard to find...Nice staff and very interesting, diverse exhibition, more detailed information also in German as an accompanying booklet.

  • We found this museum by chance. The young man at the reception explained the principle of the museum and gave us an express visit so that we could understand what way it fits, and then we took our time to discover this magnificent collection of shells and molluscs. Visit nice enough for curious eyes and no need to understand English or Slovenian.
