The collections in this museum reflect the fact that Zagreb has always been an important hub for anyone travelling from Western Europe to the East, or vice versa - many civilizations have been here both passing through and settling, hence they have a special long and interesting history. I was impressed with the quality of the items they have on show and thankful that they have survived here intact despite the recent troubles. They are well presented in a very interesting old building too (although this must limit what they can do, I'm sure they have lots more not displayed). The staff on the desk were extremely helpful and spoke good English, there is a reduced rate for older people which I didn't ask for but was given anyway. Some of the artefacts are very familiar to anyone who visits museums in the UK, the young guy on the desk reminded me that we had been part of the same civilization for some 400 years! (the Roman empire). Well worth a trip but I fear a lot of people just walk past, it isn't that well advertised although very central in Zabgreb. There is a free outside seating area at the back of the museum (with another entrance from the street behind) where you can meet up with friends and buy coffee, you sit in a nice shady garden with more Roman stone work on display.
