Behind the unimposing facade is an extraordinary collection of art, well presented and labeled. The prehistoric section contains an unusual idol and animnal-shaped vase. The Etruscan section is not to be missed. The Egyptian section contains some spectacular objects including a mummy of 4th century BC date wrapped in linen bandages which are inscribed with the longest known Etruscan (yes, Etruscan!) inscription. This alone is worth the price of admission and is a well kept secret on view in a gallery of its own. The newly installed sections about daily life in the Classical world are informative in the extreme. The numismatic section is extensive and interesting. If you are interested in the ancient world in general this is a not to miss museum. There is a garden on the museum grounds with a nice cafe and shop as well which most visitors tend to overlok and miss.

This was an amazing museum! There are so many interesting pieces from Roman and Greek times, and they have an Etruscan mummy! The longest Etruscan text in the world is also housed here. You could easily spend a whole day reading everything, but 2-3 hours is probably enough.

Archaeological Museum is located in the hearth of Zagreb on Zrinjevac. It is very nice museum but maybe to small. Someone who visited some museums in bigger towns in Europe may be expected too much. It is just nice place to see something interesting. The people are very friendly and helpful so don´t hesitate to ask anything.
Andautonia is located little bit far from center but with car it is easily to find. I don´t know if there is some bus. It is also to small for my opinion but nice place to see if you have opportunity.
