Around 5000 photographs, postcards, film and video recordings are a treat to history lovers who visit the museum.

Historical Museum Of Istria, Pula Reviews - Write a Review

  • If your a traveler with euros it's better to exchange it with the local currency (Kuna). They don't accept card or Euro for entry fee...

  • Nice place. Easy to get there. Cheap entrance fee and great view!

  • A must while you stay in Pula. Quite interesting place with great scenery and information about histoey of Pula.

  • 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.

  • Good view for almost the whole city, but the museum itself is very poor.
