We were told at the desk that an audio guide was a bit superfluous as there were English and German translations in each room. Initially I was disappointed that these were confined to a general introduction in each room and individual exhibits were labelled only...More

The reviews led me to expect that this would be a special experience. Wrong! It is a very conventional history museum - lots of objects in glass cases, no interactive material. The large number of rooms covering earlier periods manage to almost completely neglect the...More

So many unbelievable elements of Zagreb and Croatian history in this museum, that you could spend hours visiting. I was pleasantly surprised. The museum takes you on a journey from the most earliest days of Zagreb through to the post-independence period. Amazing.

Our favorite museum in Eastern Europe so far. An enchanting walk through the ages from 800 BC when Zagreb was born until today. Very well presented, the collection is vast. Do not miss this gem. A small admission price as well

This is a great starting point for understanding Zagreb. High in the Old Town, it's a bit out of the way, but easy enough to find. Don't miss the first room which is about the Serbo-Croat War, as it's not easy to backtrack. The museum...More

The museum's website confirms it will be closed on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, but oddly not Good Friday
