  • Mimara museum is a wonderfully curated museum which offers a unique view on the rich and varied art collection with works of the ancient world as well as of the European art from the early Middle Ages to the 20th century. One can also rent the space for various dinners and parties. I've attended a wedding hosted in the museum and was blown away by the decor and the ambiance.
  • Famous museum with arts collected and donated by Ante Topić Mimara. The museum is named after him.
  • Wonderful museum. 😄😄
  • It is one of Zagreb biggest museums and very characteristic when visiting the city. The exhibition itself is no big deal, even if you had visited other european museums. You can acquire an audio guide in different languages.
  • Great exibitions
