This museum covers the history of the city from the earliest foundations to recent times. It is beautifully curated and the exhibits are well-labelled and the visitor can follow the historic events with ease. Well worth a couple of hours visiting. Not to be missed!

After a visit to the city museum in Split, we were a little skeptical, but this couldn't have been more different. The museum is fantastically organized, with lots of information in English, and a lot to see. I wish the section on the conflict with Serbia would have been bigger, but otherwise, everything we learned about the history from the... More

The Zagreb City Museum is a must seen for anybody who really wants to understand the beautiful city they are visiting. The location is convenient and the staff are lovely. The exhibits work very well, easily taking the visitor on a journey through time, from the very foundations of the city, up to present day. I liked the visual layout... More

it is a very interesting museum. Very clean and well presented and is rich in history of Croatia including interesting pieces from when it formed part of Yugoslavia. There are pieces from excavations but also pieces from churches, paintings, furniture, pottery and lots of other interesting things. Definitely worth paying a visit. It is kind of hidden in the streets... More

Not your usual boring dusty place! Exceptionally well presented Museum, with interesting exhibits from the Bronze Age through Yugoslavia, eg Academy Award for Animation in the 1960's and vivid displays of life and belongings from the 1880's, 1920's. Loved it!

Nice place to visit if you like history of the place where you are at. Although, the archaeological museum seemed to have more impression on me.

We whiled away 3 hours quite happily among the wide variety of exhibits. The display boards were excellent, in Croatian, English and German. As well as artifacts from history, there were displays of excavations on site going back to the iron age. I found the place fascinating, such a wide range of subjects, nothing too detailed to be boring. There... More

The most important museum in Zagreb. Museum of the City of , although their status is not justified due to passive personnel and a lack of programs
