  • The Museum is much more big than it looks outside. Numerous pieces that bear witness to the history of the city are exposed. Highly recommended

  • The museum displays a fine collection of artifacts in 50 rooms, illustrating the history of Zagreb from prehistory to nowadays. The content is interesting but you can quickly find it indigestible if we apply to read in details each Panel information.

  • Very nice Museum worth visiting. Attention, if you be francophone, you need to master English because the audioguide is either in English or Croatian.

  • A very interesting museum in Upper Zagreb. Probably - at least in my eyes - the best in Croatia's capital. Lots of information about the city's history from the stone age until now. And from time to time they even show an exhibition full of Yugo nostalgia. I loved the one showing pictures from Trešnjevka neighbourhood and the one about the history of Zagreb's children's hospital. Both on display in early 2018. You can spent there many days but for a first glance 2 or 3 hours will do, too. However, 4 stars only because there is only very little information in English. If any.
  • So-so. I enjoyed the exhibition about different parts of the city. Not at the top of my list but still worth visiting.
  • They had an excellent exhibit but a fooolish rule against taking photos.
  • Very interesting expositions. I suggest!
  • Great museum, love it, very westeuropean Zagreb/Agram.
