Great idea, interesting exhibits for its originality and explanations with each exhibit, which return you to the past. Museum need refurbishment, but you see that they work on it and then it could be really interesting for local guests but also for many foreigners passing Turanj.

We hired a cab driver to take us from Zagreb to Plitvice for the day and he stopped here for us. Interestingly enough, our Segway tour guide Bruno from Zagreb also mentioned this place was worth a visit. Very cool. The destroyed jet was interesting. Not often can you walk up to items in museums. Apparently a lot of these... More

Turanj is a suburb of Karlovac just near the Korana River that played an important role in the Homeland War. Today, you can see an open-air museum with multiple vehicles and planes that were used in the war. Remnants of Austro-Hungarian Barracks are in ruins as a result of the war and remain sentinels to remind viewers of the devastation... More

Great restoration of bombed-out buildings and weapons of war. It is all outdoors and set in a scenic place along the Korana River.

To give you an overview: the "museum" contains about 15-20 exhibition pieces, including a few tanks and other armoured vehicles, a few cannons/howitzers and a couple of MIGs. In addition there's a couple of information boards telling about the Homeland War. That's it, nothing else. It is an outdoor exhibition on a grassy field with a gravel path. There is... More
