“Nice museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

You can visit the home and see many works of one of the great sculptures of the 20th century Ivan Mestrovic. The pieces are well presented in general but some could use additional lighting. If you like sculpture you should visit this museum.

“open or closed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Mestrovic Gallery is by far the most famous gallery in Zagreb that he wants to visit a large number of foreign tourists who have heard of the greatest Croatian sculptor Ivan Mestrovic. Unfortunately, very often, because of the short-time visitors came to the closed door. great damage

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I was bowled over by the art and the beautiful home that it occupies, now a museum. Anyone even slightly interested in sculpture should not miss this, as Ivan Mestrovic is Croatia's greatest sculptor.

“Amazing works of art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

A fantastic sculpture museum which is housed in the former residence of Ivan Mestrovic. The house itself is beautiful and historic, with wooden details such as stairways. Besides the numerous sculptures, drawings and paintings, there is furniture from the period. An outdoor interior garden contains some of the larger works of art. Mestrovic's attention to detail is amazing! Each piece is unique.

“Really enjoyed this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I hadn't heard of Ivan Mestrovic until doing research for a trip to Croatia, but was intrigued when I first read about this museum. It is definitely worth a visit. The museum is housed in Mestrovic's home which inspires a feeling of connection with the artist. There are a number of sculptures in the garden which is a small, but lovely, space to sit and relax. While walking through the various rooms we met a docent for the museum who shared interesting stories about the artist's life and his work. There are stairs to the 2nd floor, but no elevator.
