Attractive private museum

There one find impressive collection of artefacts and art from all the periods and many countries. Some pieces are unique, but the entire exhibition is very mixed.

Super fascinating place! The collection is beautiful! There are many known artists in the museum, which is well organised and clean. Go and visit it!

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

This was one of the few museums open until the early evening on a Saturday in Zagreb, so we gave it a try. Although we had read that it was a large collection, we were not entirely prepared for just how extensive it was! The collector whose donations created this museum contributed something like 3,700 pieces, covering nearly all cultures... More

Lovely collection of paintings, sculpture, glass, porcelain & artifacts spanning centuries in a wide variety of media. After fighting huge crowds in the Rijk museum in Amsterdam last year to view original Rembrandts & Vermeers, it was almost unnerving to stand so "up close & personal & alone" with original works of Rubens, Rembrandt, Goya, Velasquez, Manet, Degas, Seurat, Renoir...

The entire museum collection is collected and later donated by one single man. That alone makes it quite impressive. That being said, there was not really a wow factor to it. There were very famous names among the painters (quite a few Dutch Masters), but I wouldn't say that is was their best work. A rather big portion of the... More

This building was previously a school with totally amazing architecture. I wondered if these high schoolers realized this. I visited in the off season so had the treasures to myself. The beauty and variety of the art work was overwhelming. I stayed only two hours but could have stayed a week to fully appreciate the collection. I think that adults... More

Probably among the top 30% of art musems I visited (more than 100) although I feeling the painting collection is kind of short, but I was like the only 3 or 4 visitors inside the musem when I did my trip on the past Saturday. The arts were well presented, the museum even had a wifi guidance program that I... More
