  • It was ok. Not well prepared for tourists, but some parts of the museum do not need to be explained. A good bad-wether stop.
  • Great museum with lots of interesting facts and myths about Zagreb's long history. Be sure to check out the history about witch hunting and other gruesome but interesting stories.
  • My favourite museum in the city. Some of my photos were displayed here. I'm quite proud of that
  • Three-story-high building full of history of the city. Unfortunately it available only in Croatian.
  • My favorite museum in the city! A wonderful collection of historical artifacts, from both the city's prehistory (even before 1000's) and the extensive heritage. Really shows the growth and expansion of Zagreb and region as a whole throughout centuries.
