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

I bought a Zagreb Card so museums were half price. $6 full price. Of the 5 museums that I visited, the City Museum was the most comprehensive and informative. It's located just north of church of St.Mark (tucked away on a quiet street). There are signs to direct you. Friendly receptionist will answer all your questions.Signage in the museum is... More

I wanted to visit a museum that would give me a view of the recent history of Zagreb and Croatia and I enjoyed this museum. Only 1 other visitor while I was there on a Sunday...fortunately it was open as most of Zagreb appeared to be closed. Definite visit....

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.

Very well set out museum tells the story of Zagreb from 8th century BC to the modern day. There is information in English in each room but the details of the individual exhibits are in the local tongue only. Allow yourself 2 hours if you want to really look and learn.

Museum where for not a full two-hour tour, you can get to know the entire history of Zagreb or the Croatian. Worth seeing
