Recently, the Interpretation and Education Center has been opened at the Boathouse of the Brijuni National Park.
The new permanent exhibition is presented in an innovative and interactive way and visitors can independently discover, learn and find out a great deal of information about the cultural, historical and natural heritage of the islands.
The Boathouse, a building characterized by Secession stylistic features, was erected in 1902 by Paul Kupelwieser, an Austrian industrialist and the owner of the islands at the time.
Dr. Otto Lenz
At the very entrance you will meet doctor Lenz who lived and worked in the Boathouse. He has spent more than 30 years with his family here, and therefore the introductory part of the exhibition is dedicated to his life on the island and to numerous famous visitors to the island at the beginning of the 20th century.
Inside the Interpretation and Education Center the interactve exhibition is divided into six thematic units: “Brijuni Time Machine”, “Brijuni Archipelago”, “Mainland,” “Submarine World”, “Threats” and “Awareness”.
