Excellent village and interesting to see all the old crafts in one place. Ticket was 5 EUR, it was worth more than that. It is a must see.

Was part of a group tour from Costsaver and had the opportunity to visit this museum village. To see the house that the late President of Yugoslavia Marshall Tito lived and how well kept with the original furnishings was amazing. Surprisingly Tito lived a very simple life in this house. It was interesting to see and hear the stories of this village where Tito lived.

We attended this preserved and restored village as part of a tour. The village has many houses depicting trade and culture of times gone by. The buildings are well tended and the area is well groomed and park-like. Be prepared to walk some distance. On the other hand, the paths are very nice and probably could accommodate a wheel chair. Kids would also enjoy the outdoor spaces and displays.

The one central feature is Tito's birthplace. It was quite an experience to see this leader's humble beginnings. It was made so clear and real by our local guide.

This was a good experience but not a mandatory stop. If you run short of time, it might be skipped. The displays are not different from many other similar venues and, in an area where many of the houses are ancient, it does not appear too much different than other villages in the area.

Museum "Staro selo" Kumrovec is a unique museum in the country showing the authentic appearance of the Zagorje village, its way of life, as well as customs and crafts of ordinary peasants from this area in the early 20th century. With about forty restored buildings of traditional architecture, it presents the authentic way of living in this peaceful and beautiful region. There are traditional backyards and gardens, barns and cottages - all of which made up the rich mosaic of rural life. The restored birthplace and home of Josip Broz Tito, which stands in the center of the village, contains an ethnographic and historical exhibition.

This was a beautiful little village which was turned into a museum. It is famous for being Tito's birthplace. It is quite enjoyable to walk around and makes for some lovely photos.

We drove a rental car 65km NW to Zagreb to this small village sitting on the border with Slovenia. Although our goal was the historical birthplace of Tito, the adjoining village museum was delightful on this sunny fall day. On the edge of town is his memorial fountain and just above his dacha. Great visit.

The views of the countryside while driving to Kumrovec was beautiful and worth the trip. The stop at the Ethnological Museum's restored village from the turn of the 19th century was interesting. There are still some residents living in the village. I was interested in the way they hung corn to dry. It was a good stop on our way through the countryside.

Although it is promotted as Tito's birthhome the nearby houses have also been taken over by the museum showing life at the beginining of the 20th Century in an open-air museum. Well worth a stop if in the area.
