it is a very interesting museum. Very clean and well presented and is rich in history of Croatia including interesting pieces from when it formed part of Yugoslavia. There are pieces from excavations but also pieces from churches, paintings, furniture, pottery and lots of other interesting things. Definitely worth paying a visit. It is kind of hidden in the streets... More

Not your usual boring dusty place! Exceptionally well presented Museum, with interesting exhibits from the Bronze Age through Yugoslavia, eg Academy Award for Animation in the 1960's and vivid displays of life and belongings from the 1880's, 1920's. Loved it!

Nice place to visit if you like history of the place where you are at. Although, the archaeological museum seemed to have more impression on me.

We whiled away 3 hours quite happily among the wide variety of exhibits. The display boards were excellent, in Croatian, English and German. As well as artifacts from history, there were displays of excavations on site going back to the iron age. I found the place fascinating, such a wide range of subjects, nothing too detailed to be boring. There... More

The most important museum in Zagreb. Museum of the City of , although their status is not justified due to passive personnel and a lack of programs

We spent an hour walking through this museum, although we could have spent the whole afternoon there, if we had purchased the Audio guide. As other visitors have said, it is well organized over three floors of the building. There is an elevator making this a handicap-accessible attraction. The artifacts discovered during the archeological excavations are very impressive. We also... More

Well done. Really a history of the country too. Great combination of photos, film, historical text, artifacts, and scaled models to help you relive what has happened in this intriguing area.

A really good overview about Zagreb, from the beginning till now. The collection is huge and most of the objects are described in english. I especially liked the collection of wooden guild boxes.

We were told at the desk that an audio guide was a bit superfluous as there were English and German translations in each room. Initially I was disappointed that these were confined to a general introduction in each room and individual exhibits were labelled only in Croation. I quickly came to realise that anyone stopping to read every exhibit label... More
