  • Had a visit here with our Zagreb card. It's a good introduction to the history of Zagreb. Well worth a visit.

  • The Zagreb City Museum hosts an impressive collection of Zagreb artifacts from prehistoric times to the socialist paradise of Yugoslavia. Allow 2 to 3 hours to tour the museum.

  • I think it's one of the places you should visit while you are in Zagreb. It's well organised and there are a lot of information about the city and the life of Zagreb through out the centuries. Don't be disappointed at the beginning because it seems boring but as walk inside it gets more interesting. But I have to commend on how rude the guard was. We had 2 last rooms to visit, the part about the civil war of Yugoslavia but he wouldn't leave us 3 more minutes after the closing time.
  • essential in a visit to zagreb if you want to learn about the area you’re staying in. this place is HUGE with 45 main sections. do note that only the main section headers are in english, everything else is in croatian. near the broken relationships museum and the naïve art museum.
