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

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

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.
