Huge grey building of an old secondary school is rebuilt to a gallery. Collection of Mimara has huge reputation but it is not as important as promotion tells to visitors. They don’t have really important works as other big museums. They have quantity. You walk from one style to the other but it is hard to say, this is really... More

The building was a home of a prestigious city gymnasium until it became the art museum in 1987, hosting the huge art collection donated by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara. It contains more than 1.500 exhibits including some masterworks from famous European painters. It is well worth the visit!

I love art museums and was very surprised that the collection donated by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara, (thus the name) in 1897, contained some very great works by some of the artists of Europe. From early renaissance up through post impressionist painters on the top floor, wonderful sculpture on the second floor,and most interesting artifacts from many very early... More

This is one of those museums that just goes on forever. The collection itself is beautiful and the setting is sublime but by the power of grayskull it is immense. Well curated and nicely signed in English and Croatian it is a hidden gem set just outside the centre. Well within walking distance from the main square. If you like... More

A hidden jem devoid of people with a fantastic collection over three floors with world class art which you must put on your must see list of Zagreb.

Mimara Museum has a pretty interesting collection of art collected by Mr. Ante Topic nicknamed Mimara. maybe more interesting story is a sort of conspiracy that he was collecting art pieces right after the WWI as Tito's representative. I don't know but the museum is there and must see place in Zagreb or Croatia.

Guidebooks should flag this Zagreb treasure up much more than they do. This beautiful building contains three floors of art, sculpture, pottery, glasswork etc. from Ancient Egypt to the 20th century. Many of the older objects, from Ancient Greece, Rome, Alexandria are worth perusing, but please save time for the top floor, full of art. Not only do they have... More

We visited this museum after reading it about it in our guidebook. As an art historian I was intrigued as to what this museum had on offer as I had never heard of it yet it claimed to store the works of some of the great old masters. The collection of European and Asian artefacts was somewhat interesting to see... More
