Arts and Crafts Museum, Zagreb

4.4
#8 of 31 in Museums in Zagreb
Explore Central European craftsmanship as it was throughout the 15th to 19th centuries at Arts and Crafts Museum. The museum is part of a grand Historicist palace in the German Renaissance style that originally aimed to provide a collection of samples for master craftsmen and artists charged with the task of improving everyday items. The museum has since evolved to include the country's most advanced collection of applied art, including everything from Baroque altarpieces, furniture, ceramics, clocks, and posters. A separate room in the museum contains a number of artifacts that preserve Zagreb's pre-World War II Jewish community. Walk through using a self-guided tour with the help of translated informational signage.

  • Even if you're not into museums as such, this place is a must see even if only from the outside. An amazing example of the period architecture and a signature view of Zagreb.  more »

  • Nakon početnih zapreka (koje nećemo spominjati), moram pohvaliti osoblje, odnosno najviše našeg konobara Beru koji je sve učinio da se te početne nesuglasice riješe, također i vlasnike za koje mogu reći da im je zaista stalo da gosti budu zadovoljni u svakom smislu te riječi.Jer restoran nije samo hrana, nije samo osoblje, nije samo ambijent.To je jedna cjelina u kojoj moram priznati sve te stvari funkcioniraju na najvišem nivou.Hrana, malo je reći dobra, izvrsna i bez ikakve zamjerke! Ambijent savršen uz lokaciju koja je predivna, detalji koje je odradila ljudska ruka točno koliko treba.Uz to što se osjeća dašak glamoura, to je mjesto u kojem se možeš opustiti i družiti sa prijateljima kao da si svaki dan tamo. Hvala vam što ste mi uljepšali večer i proslavu rođendana, uz nebrojena iznenađenja, sigurna sam da se vidimo ponovo prvom prilikom! Lp! Irena Grubišić

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
