Historical Museum Of Istria Reviews & Ratings

  • Cool. But it was closed due to a special event. You can come here to look at the sunset. It’s the perfect place to be. Get yourself something to drink and take the 5 min walk. Super cool location. You don’t have to pay entry just walk around the castle and look for your personal effect spot to be.

  • Exposition is a little bit boring and poor but the location of the castle is very good, nice view

  • Interesting place but not that spectacular. One can basically see Austro-Hungarian fortress. City of Pula can be nicely observed from there.

  • Not very much to see. The panoramic view over the city is nice. But not very impressive. The museum itself doesn't have a nice collection, only some pictures of frescoes,if I would have known this before I would have walked the way up with the kids.

  • Well nice, good view of the city. Got a student discount and they never checked my card, happy days.
