Historical Museum Of Istria - Review
Founded in 1955, the historical museum of Istria is housed in a baroque style castle. Located atop a hill in Pula, this fortification offers a 360 degree view of the city and the city wall and towers can be observed. The fortress was built in the 17th century.
The museum displays around 50,000 items of immense cultural and historical value from the time period of 15th century till date. The museum mainly focuses on history of the city Pula, the medieval and the modern age history of Istria.
Hand drawn maps, decorations, medals, plaques, certificates, awards, and emblems and various other objects from the fields of pharmacy, education and the activities of individual companies attributed to everyday urban life in Pula and Istria between the 18th and 20th centuries can be observed here. There are also collectibles about maritime and shipbuilding traditions.
Around 5000 photographs, postcards, film and video recordings are a treat to history lovers who visit the museum.
In the huge courtyard, there is also the only preserved boat of the Top-TOPO type which was a typical vessel in the Adriatic Sea dating back to early 20th century.

Historical Museum Of Istria, Pula Reviews
My wife and I enjoyed walking the grounds of this museum it provides an excellent vantage point to view the town of Pula and waterfront. We watched sunset from the ramparts and it was quite romantic. The exhibit of Pula’s military history was well laid out and interesting. The 20 Kuna cost of admission converts to 4 Canadian dollars at the time of this review and is well worth it!
A walk up to this site is recommended. A great view of the city from the top. We did not enter the museum, as we walked up here as a part of the "hop on hop off" tour bus and had time constraints.
Very little to do here, large hall is devoted to boxing, the museum about the war was small. Best part is the three story tower that you could see 360 view of the city.
Interesting place but a distinct lack of history information to follow up the building. Great views of pula and of the unearthed Roman remains outside.
Very friendly caretaker man in blue overalls who seemed to run the place was very helpful in showing and telling us some things in his broken English. Great views, quiet, full of history and a few exhibitions. Only 20 kuna to get in. Worth it.
