Really informative, modern museum. Starts off with a 5 min movie on the lives of a group of Neanderthals featured throughout the museum. All exhibits feature English descriptions posted on the wall. We purchased audio guides for 10 kuna each (they ask for your passport to ensure you return the device at the end) but didn't really need them since the exhibits posted pretty much the same info. Clean bathrooms. Service desk spoke English. You're not allowed to take photos in the museum. Some opportunities to take your photo inside a Neanderthal "photo booth" and you can purchase printed copies in the gift shop at the end. After you leave the building, there is a small path to the site just before you exit through a gate. We spent about an hour there but could have easily stayed longer. Paid parking lot across the street.

Well curated museum on Neanderthal man and focused on the Krapina find. Start with the movie, then walk up the spiral floor through the Big Bang through the Paleozoic, Paleolithic and modern man and our science. Two school groups visited that day, one leaving as we arrived the other arriving as we left; great teaching museum.

One of the best designed museums I've visited. It surprised me the way they pt everything together. There are some technical problems i came across during my visit, but overall, worth going there.

This is a good place to spend a couple hours and get yourself up to speed on the history of evolutionary theory, which is to say the history of humankind as well. The exhibits were well put together. There is a walk through the adjoining hills that is worth taking on your way out also. Would recommend if you are a science buff.
