There many well displayed and well annotated historical exhibits. See if one of the curators will play some of the various mechanical musical instruments.

This museum has an excellent permanent collection but the drawback is that very rarely organizes additional special exhibitions. space and location are excellent

Interesting but nothing special. Compering to other exhibition in Zagreb this was expensive. The exit door was closed when we finished so we had to walk back on the same way from where we began. I think the reason was that all of the staff was sitting and chatting in one room and this was more joyful for them than... More

This is a huge museum that I should think the locals get bogged down in. However, because the information in English is more concise than that in Croat, - you will get round tonnes of stuff in a sensible amount of time. The numerous city models are really good, showing growth over the centuries. The many artefacts are also interesting... More

Interesting. The curator decided to show my group the old mechanical wind up musical instruments (kind of like player pianos). Fascinating instruments. Fortunately, our guide could interpret for him. Most exhibits only have narratives in Croatian, so you need someone or something to interpret for you. Worth a quick visit if you're in the area, but not a destination visit.

At the top of the hill. Average experience. Would not put it at the top of the list for things to do in Zabreb.

Went to the city museum today and must admit I did not know what to expect but found the exhibits very interesting. A temporary exhibition only had Croatian signage but the remainder (majority) of the museum had both Croatian and English explanations. Many interning objects to look at as the history of Zagreb and information on the history of Croatia... More
