The Museum contains a large collection of paintings and is situated in a central spot and easy accessible. Also the area in front of the Museum building contains a very well kapt garden even in September. As far as I remember there were three floors with gallery-rooms and a wide selection of different painters. Since my knowledge of Art is... More

The flowers outside the museum are beautiful and the interior art is precious and well worth a visit.

I really liked this museum because of it's collection. It contains glass collection, Japanese and Chinese art, paintings made by Degas, Manet... I think that people must be aware that Croatia has not money to invest in paintings or to buy new ones in some auction. To conclude this outstanding museum according to Croatians standards.

The Mimara is located across the street from the Westin Hotel and is easily accessed by the tram if you are not within walking distance. There are three floors of treasures, starting on the first floor with a fabulous sculpture reclaimed from the sea. Don't miss the masters on the top floor. Allow a couple of hours to see everything.

What makes Zagreb a satisfying city to visit is the presence of so many high quality museums. The Mimara Museum is housed in an amazing late Victorian Palace set on a generous lawn in an area of museums and other cultural landmarks. In addition to Old Master European paintings, there are Greek, Roman and Egyptian collections as well as a... More

I'm giving this museum 2 stars, because of the very cool Croatian Apoxyomenos, the restored statue of an athlete, that is housed here. Otherwise, the museum contains a weird mis-mash of old glass, uninspired decorative art, and alleged old masters with scotch tape stuck to them. (Yes, scotch tape! Stuck to oil paintings!) I wish I'd done more research before... More

The only reason the Mimara doesn't deserve a 1 star is because it houses the gorgeous classical Greek sculpture brought up from the sea. That work, though, had nothing to do with the infamous Mimara. It's a well-known fact in art history that that his attributions of the paintings he collected to famous artists are wishful thinking, but it's the... More

Mainly ancient artifacts and religious art; clearly the collection of a collector who collected everything old rather than concentrating on any particular aspect. Not all the descriptions were translated into English althogh some were

This is apparently the collection of one man, opened relatively recently, although it has the feeling of a well-established national museum. The main attraction is the collection of paintings on the second floor. No particularly famous works, but plenty of interest. A lot of the paintings are 'school of' or 'attributed to' rather than autograph, but are definitely worthy of... More
