I expected more

The Mediadom is OK, but I expected more. The 3D movie about the history of Piran was nice, but all the rest just so-so.

A great way to learn about the development of the city of Piran, in an entertaining way. Short media presentation gives a background of the culture and history on this lovely coastal city. Posters and interactive materials throughout. Recommended.

Great History of Piran with 15 minute 3D Movie
Jul 2019
This is a wonderful and quick way to get a lot of information about Piran's history. The 3D movie is well done and informative. Strolling around the museum afterwards seemed to be a bit redundant (I didn't watch all the videos on the wall) but still interesting.

Thank you so much for a great visit to your museum. It always feels good to learn more about the place you visit, and Piran is really a historical pearl reflecting European history ages back. Well presented in the Mediadom Pyrhani. Recommended to all visitors of Piran.

Tiny but interesting
Jul 2018 • Couples
There isn't much to this museum, but what's there is interesting. Several touch screens are mounted around the room with videos and/or text about various aspects of Piran's history, including the town wall, salt flats, and how the various governments worked. There are also archaeological trenches with glass over top so you can walk over them, and a lower level where you can walk into the trench. The trenches are only labeled in Slovenian and Italian, but the rest of the displays are in multiple languages each, including English, German, Italian, Russian and Slovenian. Upstairs is a 3-D movie about Piran's history. It lasts about 15 minutes and is a nice, basic overview of what was said downstairs.

The movie would have been fine for young children but the rest of the exhibition not so much-- too much reading! They did have a toddler table with crayons and paper for very little ones--it was a bit random, but sweet that somebody made an effort to entertain the smallest visitors.

A must if yo in Piran
Oct 2017 • Couples
The museum is an interactive one. You have screens where you can read and select what you like to know and a 3D movie that explains the history of the town.
In the museum you can see how did in the old days people cool they wine and food (sellers under the surface).

A great visual history and interactive venue describing life througout the centuries in Piran. A wonderful 3 D cinema showing a film about Piran. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff who I could talk to for hours.

3D movie a must see to learn about Piran!
Oct 2017 • Couples
Take the time to visit this museum and make sure you attend the 3D movie to learn about the history of Piran. It will give you much more of an appreciation for this gorgeous town. For only 3 euro you won’t regret it. It’s easy to find - you’ll see signs for the museum on the way up to the church.

One of the nicest little history museums we've ever visited
Sep 2017 • Couples
We are not regular visitors to museums at all, but what we do like are small, well considered, interesting and informative little places like this.

Firstly the place is hidden away up a tiny little traditional street behind the main square, but then upon entry you are firstly met with a cool, modern and extremely well designed and attractive interior, then secondly the smiling face of the really friendly and helpful lady on the desk. The entry cost was minimal, and the lady spoke beautiful English and proceeded to proudly explain how the museum works with its interactive nature and the route to follow.

The touch screens around the main room are really good and give as much or as little information as you desire, there are steps down into part of the ancient underground tunnels and then on the top floor you are treated to a 3D cinematic experience showing you how Piran came into existence right up to the current day.

The place is only small, but the way the screens work mean you can go round at a pace that suits you. Stuffy museums are not for us, but this place really works!

We loved our visit here and would highly recommend it.
