Blew my mind!

A visit to the museum was included in our walking tour of Zagreb. Walked in with very low expectations and was blown away with what I saw. Don't miss it!

Go and spend some time with these beautiful, powerful paintings. The gallery is in the middle of the upper old town. Great to experience something truly Croatian.

This is a must see if in Zagreb. Gives a wonderful perspective and history. Easily can spend over an hour in this very intimate museum. Very near Broken Relationships.

The visit takes about an hour at the most, and expect to see colorful, little-known works of art. we were constantly monitored and followed by two staff-attendants who kept telling us to stay within the zone-markers, who later got annoyed at being questioned about the artworks. google is your best friend in case you have questions that the booklet doesn't...

This museum displays some unique art and highlights a traditional method of oil painting on glass so details are put in first and background later. The colors are so vivid because there is no canvas to absorb the paint. Museum is small but so is the price so those not as interested in art will find it very manageable.

Very unusual, small art museum right near the Town Hall. Excellent guide explained the methods and artists of astonishing works. No artists had professional training, but there are fantastic results.

If you are art museum goer, you should definitely stop by this small museum. It's located close to St. Mark church so you can go there while you are exploring the upper town. I have been to numerous art museums in the USA , European countries and Korea and I can say that this museum has really unique and distinctive... More

This is how felt when I entered the first room. I was astonished looking at such paintings. It was my first visit to a gallery that had naive art. And I was conquered, Those artists are geniuses especially Ivan Lackovic and Ivan Generalic. I could have stayed hours looking at their paintings. It is a small museum and try to... More

This was one of our highlights in Zagreb. A very manageable museum (5-6 rooms), with an incredible collection of mid-century naive art. Which is.....? Not in the avant-garde of Western Art, but not Eastern Bloc realism either. Certainly in the modern tradition. Rich textures and colors, and interesting compositions. Well worth the visit!

I went in as it was on my travels, it is quite small but well worth a look. It has some really interesting art which I spent quite a while looking at, artists are mostly from Croatia and you get a real feel for how people lived in Croatia. If you have the time I would suggest going as it... More
