Visit & dinner (amazing) at Ecomuseum- Must see!
Mar 2019 • Friends
We as University of Gastronomic Sciences were really lucky to spend some time in this beautiful and inspiring environment such as the didactic farm ( a great and ambitious project involving disabled kids) and the Ecomuseum, which we found out is managed by some young and passionate people, who should really get more praise for what they do socially and in general for Istria. I’m really glad i got to know these people and their amazing products like wine, acquavite, wild asparagus and any kind of vegetables, i defitevly hope to come back one day and maybe help them out somehow! Everybody passing in these areas should really stop by and check out the museum and have a chat with these amazing and inspiring people. Much love!

Amazing experience
Mar 2019 • Friends
We’ve visited ecomuseum and the garden project at school in Dignano with a group from the university of gastronomic sciences (UNISG). This amazing project has as a main goal to valorize this nice little town and to teach to the children about good food, sustainability and the importance of a community.
People are very passionate and interesting!

Great experience throught past

I was here years ago on their first day of opening. Their love and passion is allover the place. You can see how people from Dignano- Vodnjan lived here 100of years ago and also the past 60 years.

A very nice experience, we visited only by coincidence. A small, cosy and interesting museum, with enthusiastic guide! You get to see and learn a lot about everyday life in earlier times. Really worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood!

Fascinating social history brought to life

We visited the Ecomuseum after seeing it got good reviews, and we weren't disappointed. The chap on the door was very helpful and showed us round, sharing information about the building and the way of life and answering our questions. We had two teenagers with us who found it interesting too - result! Would definitely recommend.

Unique, fascinating, and immersive

Ecomuseum is a great way to get to know the culture and history of Istria, tasting their own wine fresh from the barrel, and their own homemade fig and cherry schnapps. The museum is made all the better by the guides, who are really passionate and engaged, and were happy to chat about the region, their own lives, and anything else.

really insightful and fun!

During our one week stay in Istria we also visited Vodnjan on a rainy day. While we intended to go and see the mummies we were told that the priest was only able to see us an hour later. The tourism office recommended us to first go and meet the people of the eco museum which was next door on the main square. We were welcomed by Rob/Robbi/Robin(?), a well educated, passionate and very responsive young man who shared the ins and outs of the museum house and its 200 year history. We had a very pleasant one-on-one talk and learned a lot about Istria. We really recommend you to go and see him!

Aug 2017 • Friends
While visiting the region of Istria i end up to discover the bautifull town of Vodnjan-Dignano. I stayed for a few days and end up visiting this small but big museum.

They do an amazing job in preserving the traditions of the town and the guides are super enthusiastic.
I will for sure repeat the visit.

A true oasis
Oct 2017 • Couples
We visited the museum in October 2017, just passing through Vodnjan on our way to somewhere else. Parked our car at the edge of the small town (and got a ticket, so be careful), walked along one of the streets leading to the main square, admired the street art/graffiti/murals, the old churches and eventually ended up on the square. The man in the tourist office was somewhat underwhelming (to say the least) in his enthusiasm to help us. But next door was the eco-museum, run by young people with a definite feel for what visitors want. Instead of the expected 15 minutes we must have spent at least an hour there, listening to fascinating stories, asking questions, getting to know the place, buying honey and tea. Even the ticket on the window of our car couldn't dampen our happy mood. Thanks guys!!

Hi, We are really glad that you enjoyed your time with us that much that even a fee ticket was not enough to ruin your day. Vodnjan is such a small place but so full of traditions to share, we love to pass along this knowledge. We really hope to see you again in our house of traditions, (This time without a fee ticket).
