Our young guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke fluent English. There's lots to see here if you are interested in recent history. Highlight is going in the mini submarine. Cafe too.

You get to see so many actual weapons that were used in wwII. They have planes and tanks and even a submarine! I thought the gift shop was overpriced. Overall a good experience. The kids enjoyed it.

After visiting Postojna Caves and Predjama Castle, we stop at this museum where you can get to see some tanks and other war machines specially from WWII

We were offered a guided tour. The museum is full of military equipment, each with a story and arranged so you are able to closely examine it all. With the guide we learned the long military ties Slovenia has with the US. Highly recommended.
