Well worth your time. Very educational.
Sep 2019
I am a nerd. And, this is a nerd history museum.
Do you enjoy science, history and engineering? If yes, then you will love this small museum. Lots to read about (in both Slovene and English). Slovenia (with a short coastline) is very proud of their efforts in the underwater area.

+ Inexpensive.
+ Great "music". Bubbles.
- Cash only
- No Wi-Fi.

Well worth a visit
Aug 2019 • Family
Not obvious (entrance looks more like a souvenir shop front on a side street) but worth looking for. Not big (two rooms) but interesting history of deep sea diving (in general and in Slovenia) in first room and history of Slovenian submariners and cavers in the second room. If you like your museums with interactive exhibits this is not for you but otherwise it has interesting information boards with pictures and photos plus exhibits.

Nice place for Underwater lovers

Nice place for Underwater lovers. If you aren't a passionate lover of underwater activities maybe this is not the right place to visit:). In any case you can spend an interesting 30 minutes of your time in Piran.

Very limited interest
Aug 2018
This is the museum you visit if the maritime museum in Piran is closed, which it was when we visited on a Moday. (Why do museums close on Mondays? I can't see any reason for it nowadays.) The Museum of Underwater Activities is of interest only to those very interested in diving in the Adriatic. There are interesting bits in the panels (which are very hard to read - blue type on dark blue background in poor light) but overall it is too esoteric for most visitors.

Majestic collection of Maritime Heritage
Apr 2018
The museum is a lovely treasure of technical selection linked with underwater activities, known and used in the part of Adriatic sea-Istrian peninsula. I give my best recommendation to visit it - to all who love the sea and care for its conservation. Charming Doris at the museums reception is very warmhearted and gives the answers to all the curious questions. If you have a lucky day you can also meet Žarko, the founder of the museum, who is a real encyclopedia of historical diving! While visiting Piran Town, this museum is a must see!

Too small
Sep 2017 • Solo
The exhibit itself is interesting but very small. I was very bothered by that.
They had plenty tours for school kids, which I understand but the audio was too loud.
There is more writing than actual artifacts so also not a plus.
Staff was okay.
Still, good place to visit
