I wondered if this would be a very simplified explanation aimed more at children. Happily no though the initial movie could give that impression. The displays are well-presented and the information in Croatian, German and English is sufficiently comprehensive and well-worded for most visitors. Quite...More

It's exciting for kids to show how we got together and how we lived. For them it is another universe. Greatly designed.

It depends on how interested you and your children are in a subject. I would say you can do it in 45 min/1 hour but if you want to take your time and stroll around the park outside the museum than count on 90 minutes minimum.
