Not a bad place to visit, there is a lot of great things to see, from ancient Egypt to modern times. However, if you are in Zagreb for only a few days, I would recommend spending time in one of the following museums: Archeological museum, Musum of the City of Zagreb, Museum of Arts and Crafts or the unique Museum...

This museum is called croatian Louvre. It has exponated from the world and different periods. But, some people say many of them are copies! I don't know.

We have been in many museums the world over and found this museum to have the most detailed, informative and easy to use on-line guide we have ever used. The collection itself is extensive, with pieces dating from 15,000 B.C. to the early 20th century. It covers three floors, but is well organized by type of art and time period... More

Huge grey building of an old secondary school is rebuilt to a gallery. Collection of Mimara has huge reputation but it is not as important as promotion tells to visitors. They don’t have really important works as other big museums. They have quantity. You walk from one style to the other but it is hard to say, this is really... More

The building was a home of a prestigious city gymnasium until it became the art museum in 1987, hosting the huge art collection donated by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara. It contains more than 1.500 exhibits including some masterworks from famous European painters. It is well worth the visit!

I love art museums and was very surprised that the collection donated by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara, (thus the name) in 1897, contained some very great works by some of the artists of Europe. From early renaissance up through post impressionist painters on the top floor, wonderful sculpture on the second floor,and most interesting artifacts from many very early... More

This is one of those museums that just goes on forever. The collection itself is beautiful and the setting is sublime but by the power of grayskull it is immense. Well curated and nicely signed in English and Croatian it is a hidden gem set just outside the centre. Well within walking distance from the main square. If you like... More
