I wasn't quite as impressed with this place as other TA reviewers have been. Pros: - easy to find - very nice staff - cheap entry fee (15 kuna) Cons: - somewhat dimly lit - many artefacts in glass containers, so reflected glare made taking photographs difficult - artefact labelling seemed to lack uniformity; some English, but mostly Croatian -...

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.

Go straight upstairs, don't bother with the general exhibition of collected goodies from around the world. The folk costumes upstairs are wonderful. so many, so different, so intricate. Just lovely if your a folk / nation costume fan. Downstairs near the gift shop there was also an exhibition about the annual Folk Festival held in July - yet more costuming!... More

This is a small museum, but offers some unique insight to local culture! There is an extensive collection of traditional folk clothing, and a really interesting photo exhibition documenting rural Croatian people and their connections to their homeland. The information about local legends and beliefs about witches, fairies and other mythical creatures was also a highlight!

It was nice to go around and admire the beautiful dresses and the charming old farm houses from different parts of Croatia. The museum is located at 14 Ivan Mažuranić Square. It was founded in 1919 by Salamon Berger. It lies in the Secession building of the one-time Trades Hall of 1903, designed by the architect Vjekosav Bastl. The statues... More

My friend took me here so that I could buy traditional Croatian wooden toys, which are not very easy to find. The selection is good, and the prices are reasonable. As a bonus, there was an exhibition of photos and installations of old Croatia with witches, demons and just plain farm folk.

Mostly this museum is about the different regional costumes found around Croatia. We also find this interesting on several levels: social, economic, regional, religious, ethnic and artistic. We spent a concentrated hour and felt we did it justice. Not sure if it was temporary but we found the exhibit on smoking on the first floor to be particularly interesting. Although... More

The main exposition is nice, but stays there over 40 years I heard. There are also some extra exibitions, but nost stunning (it depends also on money).
