Neat spot, lots of history shared here in appealing exhibits. A no audio tours in English yet when we were there, but plenty of signage--a little small for aging eyes, but informative.

This museum actually got a lot better as we went on, but we could have quit very early with almost everything on the downstairs level in Croatian. Sorry, but if you take the money of international visitors you must have explanations in at least one 'global' language. Upstairs was far better explained.

You may notice that there aren't many photos of this museum on Trip Advisor and that is because they do not allow any photos.

This museum has an excellent permanent collection . The numerous city models are really good, showing growth over the centuries. In a big building, it takes at least 1 hour to go through it all quickly
