    Creative, evolves around personal stories from individuals around the world, sharing their stories with personal memories & items. Some of these stories are outstanding connection with one's own life and experiences. The creativity in presentation, thematic topics, and design adds to Zagreb the city as a public artistc space!

    It is very cool museum to see but I expected it to be bigger. Also great for children and there are few cool illusions, but since it is not as big, an hour is enough to see al of the illusions.

    Very good idea of turning old apartment into 80s museum, it was nice experience for remembering old times. You can touch everything there, so that's very cool.

    Excellent displays which were in English and Croatian made visiting this amazing museum a pleasure. The well organized layout, uncluttered display of artifacts and well lit rooms made the tour of the building an easy and educational stop for an afternoon.

    Not what you expect looking outside the building or used to science museums. Much more real exhibits from history based, engineering focus Inc on nuclear, astrology, aviation, engines to name a few. Good small exhibit on tesla with a video of his experiments by one of the museum. Still a worth while visit.

    The museum is well worth a visit, plenty to see and read about the history of the city over the centuries.

    This was an interesting find as we wandered through the streets of Zagreb. The entrance is in a hallway up a flight of stairs. Follow the arrows ▶️▶️▶️. When you think you’ve gone the wrong way, you’re there.

    They take both cash and credit cards 💳. The tour is taken using tablets 📱 that are in a multitude of languages, which coordinate with torture items along the way.

    It’s not a big place at all but definitely has all the torture items 🪓🔪🗡⛓ one could want to see. It’s dark and there is “spooky” music playing in the background. The tablets also have pictures or videos showing exactly how the devices were used. Consider those things when deciding to visit with young people, people with PTSD, etc.

    If those aren’t issues, check it out! It’s about $9 a person entry fee.

    You won't like this museum if you're allergic to: iconic figures in European sports-political history, short shorts, a tour guide who's the nephew of Petrovic, '80s haircuts, incredible merch, the feeling of hopes reached and unfinished. I was 6,000 miles from where I live, but at the Petrovic museum I wasn't far from home ... because ball truly is life. The Wi-Fi isn't very strong.

    Take the tram 20 minutes to get here, then waited 40 minutes for it to open at 11 AM. Then, found out it was closed for renovation, but for a special exhibit. The exhibit was certainly worth seeing, as it was very different, all done with pencil/lead. Honestly, I don’t think I would travel 20 minutes each direction to see this exhibit, had I not already been there.

    Fabulous little place, absolutely in awe with it! Was very lucky to have a private guided tour too. Excellent service, fantastic displays. An absolute must to see, especially with children. Would highly recommended and most definitely come again

    All in all, nice for a viewpoint, but do not remember that it is of historical significance and there is a monument there. Worth visit. You can approach close to the car and take ca 5 - 10 min walk to the castle.

    This is definitely a hidden gem. Literally - it is hard to find (look for the small mushroom display in a window opposite where the flowers are sold at the market). But worth it when you get there. The man is very knowledgeable and engaging, and the display is outstanding. I would recommend even to those who haven't thought they had an interest in mushrooms before.

    Now home to the Croatian State Archives this classic Art Nouveau building, still shows off the symbolism with Owls & Globes underlining the Library's original educational purpose.
    The Archives are located on the route of the grand Green Horseshoe ( Lenuci's Horseshoe ) which is strongly recommended as a walk capturing Parks, Gardens & a parade of magnificent architecture.

    It is an interesting museum, however stuff is a bit random and not well described. The local costumes/textiles are very well displayed. There is also a great exhibit on bikers and their dogs which I thought was absolutely great.
