This is an AMAZING building and we actually saw a wedding occur here one night, so we decided to check it out. Listen, the collection is massive but there isn't an actual theme or flow to it. It was also not air conditioned, so be prepared to sweat. It was cheap and we did have some time to spare, but... More

So peaceful to browse round many different artefacts and paintings from all over the world. Absolutely unmissable for anyone who likes 'things' as well as paintings. We're due back to Zagreb in two weeks and this will be our first port of call.

The write ups of the Mimara suggest it to be a lot more. A magnificent building and the donator Topic Mimara a lifetime collector and a fine man but it is not a great art collection. It does have a few paintings by some great artists but theses are mostly their far lesser works and all the floors containing all... More

This museum is really something. The permanent exhibition has works from ancient Egypt and Greece, but also paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Goya. The museum was founded to display the artworks donated by private collector Ante Topic Mimara and was opened to the public in 1987.

If you are in Zagreb as tourist or on some business trip take a time to visit it. It is a overviuw of direferent art directions, different epochs and a legacy from one rich collector who thought on his city. Interessting.

It is an impressive, indeed imposing building. That's the main point. Before you go Google the "donator" of the collection Anton Topic Mimara. there is a good article on the site about looted art. An amazing story which really makes you wonder how he convinced the government to spend so much on the building. Fakes? Over restored? a bit of... More

Don't waste your time and money that is all I have to say. It's full of tat you might find in an ageing relatives house and the paintings are held together with sellotape.

The museum is beautifully presented in a handsome building but the inclusion of so many obviously fake paintings undermines the credibility of the labels and handbook. While some of the mistakes are understandable others are simply absurd.
