The castle is in a beautiful location. Great views of the city and the Drava River. The exhibitions are interesting and rich in sights. The castle is easily accessible from the city. A short walk down a small slope.

This was a really nice castle and museum combined. It gave a a good insight into the local history and had lots of interesting artifacts. There was an interesting small folk museum near the entrance - had some very wierd traditional costumes in it You go around it in a loop

Good museum, can be done in 2 hours, inexpensive entry charge. Easy walk as it is the old town. Plenty of history in Ptuj

If you’re really into the medieval period, look elsewhere. There are extensive exhibits here, very interesting, but much more focused on families living here in 1800s. And Ptuj didn’t have much to offer beyond this castle.

Excellent view on the whole town. The visit can be quiet quick, but it is worth spending some time in the room with medieval weaponry and stroll through the rooms that have been refurbished and make it easy to imagine how well the people of the castle lived, and reigned upon
