What a FUN place to visit while visiting Pula! We waited a long time for the owner to arrive. Finally decided to leave and come back a bit later as many others waiting with us did. When we went back in the afternoon it was open! So worth going back for! We laughed, took pictures, learned some things about Socialist life In Yugoslavia and reminisced and had such a FUN time! I highly recommend it! Loved every moment! Ty for having this museum to visit! We will always remember it! ❤️

Absolutely loved it, best museum I've ever been to so far experience wise. We left the place in sucha great mood had So much fun playing with items that brought us back to our childhood memories. You literally feel like you're back in time. Lady at the reception was extremely lovely as well! Highly recommend visiting the price is really cheap and the experience is definitely worth it! Plus you get a VIP customer service.
P. S. Do not be afraid to touch anything that's the whole fun!

We visited this museum during our stay in Medulin.
The kids liked it very much because you can interact with every single object.
I felt like going back in time to my childhood home.
There were many familiar items, some from our parents, some from our grandparents’ time.
The things I liked the most and still think about is the Commodore 64 computer, the vintage writing machines, the vintage Telex machine.
There are many great places to take photos, holding/wearing different objects.
100% would recommend for a nice time.

Pure nostalgia and awesome interactive experience in the center of Pula! We loved that we could touch everything and get a feeling of how people lived in ex-yugoslavia. Old computers, a yugo car to sit inside and many more interesting gadgets, things and rooms to see. It took us around 1 hour, although I wished to stay longer, but my friend was too hungry and we had to leave. I wish to come back again.

The idea of the display is great – to show what it was like to live in the city during Soviet times. The reality fails to catch fire… more damp squib than sharp political insight, to be honest. What’s there is good but I can’t help feeling that a little more effort and some additional content would make a big difference.

This is a tiny museum just up the slope behind the arena. It has about 6 small rooms recreating life mostly in the 70s. Hence if you're over 50 you'll remember most of the stuff on display (e.g. formica worktops and typewriters). You may even have the items in your spare room or attic. We probably have enough items at home to open our own museum. We spent about 20 mins here.

Reasonably interesting, but very small. About 4 euros to get in, for a 10 minute visit. Too expensive. A 2 euro entry fee would have been more reasonable. Friendly staff.

Dear MariaEind, We are very sorry to hear that visit of our museum was under your expectation. Whole museum area is on around 200m2, in each zone next to almost each exibit you have description on 5 foreign languages. At several corners you can find photo point to take a picture, you can touch all exibits and open most of drawers and closets. Averige time spent on our museum is around 40 minutes per visitor. All the best from Memo museum team! If you will be again in Pula, please come and visit us again, we'll do a guidance of the museum to show you our story through a different eye!

An engaging experience worth a visit. A journey through time where you can explore, feel, touch and interact with authentic objects. Do take your time inside, discover and immerse yourself in that part of history.

We popped in on a cloudy day and weren't disappointed. The museum is rather small, but there are plenty items you can admire or even pick up and "play with" and if you're (more or less) over 30, you should recognize a lot of them.
Great for taking interesting photos as you interact with items from the past.
