It is an interesting museum, however stuff is a bit random and not well described. The local costumes/textiles are very well displayed. There is also a great exhibit on bikers and their dogs which I thought was absolutely great.

This is a very nice museum keeping the feel of the old and showing you how people lived in the past. Go visit while in Zagreb and you might be surprised.
