Museums and collections

Ecomuseum Istrian de Dignan

Vodnjan's ecomuseum is a unique place where tradition, culture and local products come together. Within a rustic environment, respecting the traditions and customs of the town's ancestors, you can discover a new experience of the town: the flavours, smells and customs are combined, providing a unique and innovative way of sightseeing Vodnjan, a destination that is rich with natural local products.

The ecomuseum is located in the heart of the old town, on the main square and displays tools and objects that used to be part of everyday life. Here you can taste local food and drinks, learn about the history of stone, steel and wood through a guided tour of the museum, or by taking an unrepeatable tour of Vodnjan in an antique 'voz' (carriage) pulled by the last two donkeys from this area.
