learned a lot f Zagreb History

Some of the panels are in English. This was a great introduction to the history of the area. We took 2 hours and only got to the second of three floors.

If you want to learn about the history of Zagreb this is your place! And it's a long history so make sure you have a couple of hours to spare if you want to properly see it. Each room is thematically organised and the main introduction of each room is translated in English (and German) but the individual exhibits carry... More

The Zagreb City Museum traces the history of the city from early Roman times to the 1990s. It is filled with artifacts and exhibit items of great interest.

It focused a lot on the distant past of the city in often painful detail. Not in English except for one overview description for most rooms. the models and displays of Zagreb were good, though.

This museum dedicated to the city of Zagreb is actually in the making. Started and organised, perhaps, after Croatian's independence about two decades ago, it is going to be better organised on professional lines. Would definitely be a better source to know the city history.

Zagreb city Museum is a little far from the center of Zagreb city. It has many histrical exhibits. It takes more than one hour to see them all.

Because it was raining, we decided to visit more indoor sites than planned. The exhibits were excellent and the museum was very uncrowded. It covered the entire history of this fascinating a beautiful city.
