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.

I wasn't expecting so much from a seemingly small city museum but it says a lot about the city, there are so many beautiful pieces of art work/architecture and plenty of English translations around the rooms

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.

Good overview of the city's history. Contemporary history exhibits are especially riveting given the hardships of World War II, Communist occupation, and the break up of Yugoslavia.

My husband and I enjoyed over three hours at this excellent museum where we learned a great deal about the history of Croatia and more. The name suggests it is about Zagreb but its scope if national. The visit provided an excellent foundation for the ensuing week of tours around Croatia.

They have good material but it is just badly laid out and propped up unnecessarily with half hearted attempts at something. Some of the artefacts are laid out as if it was the souvenir shop. It really need someone to redesign it entirely with lighting and sounds to create atmosphere. Also, provide full translations no just of a few items.... More
