Excellent museum to find out about Zagreb and I would say it is a must when in the city. Too bad it is not allowed to take pictures, though.

This museum has a promising lobby & an English language flyer, but once you enter the museum proper it is poorly lighted, lack of signage and a museum guard who is loud and rude about not taking photographs. One must be quite diligent to assemble some reasonable story about the history of the city. It is definitely not worth the... More

The twists and turns in this place mean there's almost literally something around every corner - far more than you might expect there to be. Most of the explanations are in Croatian only, but that makes guessing what you're looking at (or making it up) more fun. Bear in mind there are no lockers, so if you have a bag... More

This museum is attractive for beginners and for experts about city's history. It's very interesting. In February the staff preforms in historical costumes.

The City Museum is located in Gradec or Upper Town, 2 blocks up from St. Mark's square. Look for a side entrance in a courtyard of a former convent. The city museum gave me an overview of Zagreb's history from its earliest people in the 6th century B.C. to the 1990's. For example, one display showed, by archaeological evidence of... More

Located in an ancient convent, there is a very interesting archeological site in the basement showing Roman and iron age levels.
