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

An excellent overview of the cultural, artistic, economic and political history & development of Zagreb, stretching from Neanderthal prehistory to the Roman Era to the present. I found the exhibits on medieval Gradec and Kaptol, as well as the history of Poor Clares and the renovation of the Zagreb Cathedral to be particularly interesting. My only complaint is the dearth...

This museum is spacious and interesting with many exhibits in, you can see and experience the entire history of the City of Zagreb and the Croatian but. The only drawback is that there are no special facilities and programs, and it after a visit there is no need to visit multiple

I am not big on Museums but I was definitely taken back with the history of this country and its people. Definitely worth going to experience the culture and the magic of Croatia.
