The whole history of Zagreb, and Croatia , from pre-history to today. It was wonderful, including early archaelogy and WW II.

Great little museum. Learnt a lot about the history on Zagreb. If you can't read Croatian then you will need an audio guide to get full benefit from your visit. Would recommend.

This is a good place to go on your first day in Zagreb - a fascinating tour through the history of the city. The museum is well-organised on a chronological basis, and you need about 2 hours to see it properly. Each room covers a particular period, and as you enter there is a panel with text in Serbo-Croat, English... More

An old convent converted into a museum. They excavated under the monastery and found artifacts dating back to the Roman times. you can walk through history from then until today. Very well presented.

We arrived here on New Years Eve with about 50 minutes before closing however the attendant was most accommodating and welcomed us in. With only 50 minutes our visit was rushed but even so found the museum to be a gem, full of excellent displays, logically and innovatively presented, yes some of the displays are lacking an English interpretation panel...

In my 29 years living here I've visited almost every museum in Zagreb, most of them more than once. And Zagreb Municipal museum is one of my favorite. It's very interactive, which makes it interesting for both kids and adults. You get a nice overview of Zagreb history getting an insight into all aspects of living in Zagreb through the... More

After tracking this musuem down, we found it a bit disappointing although it's hard to say why and is probably our fault. For us there just wasn't enough information in English so that we couldn't get a real sense of what we were looking at or grasp the different themes. The desk attendant was not able to help and there... More

The museum gives you a good idea of the history of Zagreb, but the exhibits are somewhat fragmented (a lot of different topics) and recent history is hardly covered. The war in the 90s doesn't get a lot of attention. Furthermore, only the big info panels are translated to English, but the small ones describing objects are not.

This museum is chock full of interesting exhibits. We spent far more time there than expected, and it was well worth it.
